Damascus 4.5" Knife with Wenge Wood Handle and Steel Bolster FC2514-1
Our Damascus knives are handcrafted from extraordinary materials and refined for the highest level of cutting performance, unparalleled sharpness and striking aesthetics. Wenge wood is not only beautiful, but durable and easy grip. Each knife is a unique work of art, styled and crafted by master bladesmiths from the hand-carved edge to the Damascus blade.
Damascus blades were created by forge welding multiple layers of steels into a Solid block called a billet (4340 &1095 High Carbon Tool Steels). The billet is folded and re-welded several times to produce several layers. Patterns are created by manipulating the steel during the forge welding process. When acid is added to the blade, it attacks the layers of hard and soft steels differently, highlighting the attractive layered pattern in the Steel. The combination of layered hard and soft steel creates blade flexibility, toughness and produces invisible serrations on the blade that aid cutting. The hardness of the Damascus steel is 54-56 HRC on the rockwell scale.
