Damascus 4.5" Knife with Carved Black Pakkawood Handle FC2517
This knife is handcrafted from extraordinary materials and refined for the highest level of cutting performance. The collection is the top of the line, notable for its unparalleled sharpness and striking aesthetics. Each knife is a unique work of art, crafted by master bladesmiths from the hand-carved edge to the Damascus-pattern blade.
The Damascus blade was 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 Rockwell scale. A genuine leather sheath is included.
