Description

The blades are hammer-forged, folded 'Pattern Welded Steel'. Commonly known as 'Damascus Steel' as the final product is very similar to the steel mined from the Damascus mines of a bygone era. It is produced from combining steels of different grades. They are twisted and folded together, resulting in beautiful swirls and grain patterns. The final polishing, sharpening and treatment on the blade bring out these patterns to their full stunning glory.

Our artisan smiths are very talented indeed. Utilizing special elements in the various layers of damascus steel. Upon the final blade treatment, the steel grain rather than exhibiting different shades of grey, turns different shades of black, oranges, maroons and purples. A sight to behold!

Simply stunning tanto mounted in "Kaiken" seamless style with all buffalo horn fittings.
