Rocking style handmade best Damascus Chef Knife 9" blade 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 kitchen knife is a unique work of art, crafted by master bladesmiths in a series of multiple steps from the hand-carved edge to the Damascus-pattern blade.
Damascus for this Damascus chef knife was created by forge welding multiple layers of steel into a Solid block called a billet (4340 &1095 high carbon steel). 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 steel differently, highlighting the attractive layered pattern in the steel.
The combination of layered hard and soft steel creates blade flexibility and toughness and produces invisible serrations that aid cutting. The hardness of the Damascus steel is 54-56 HRC on the Rockwell scale.
The handle is made out of blue pakkawood & brass bolster, with brass pins spanning the blade. There is a beautiful mosaic pin embedded in the handle. This kitchen knife comes with a genuine leather Pouch.
Damascus steel has a higher content of carbon which gives it a long-lasting edge. However, the carbon makes it susceptible to rust when it is subjected to moisture.
Proper Care Tips:
- Do not store knives in the leather sheath/leather roll for long periods of time.
- After use, wash in warm soapy water and dry immediately.
- Use cooking oil to coat the blade before storing.
If rust appears, rub the blade with a metal polish or a very fine steel wool, then oil the blade.
Damascus knives take a little more care, but their sharp, long-lasting edge and great feel will last you many years to come.
