damascus, folding, knife, folder, pocket, pocket-knife, handmade, handforged

The wonderful thing about our Damascus steel is its always hand-forged. Artisan blacksmiths make these knives using traditional methods, good old hammer and anvil. Honouring skills passed down through millennia. This produces something intrinsically valued and beautiful that machined cut blades never have. 

Damascus steel in the modern sense is obtained by forging alternate types of steel together. Using various techniques of both layering and twisting the smith is able to produce an array of patterns, all crafted by hand. Each pattern is unique like a fingerprint. Original Damascus steel dates back to the Viking age, and blacksmithing to early civilization. 

Nice solid folder. Fantastic file work and chunky grip.
