Description

The blade is forged, hammered and 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 of the blades bring out these patterns to their full stunning glory.

Our artisan smiths are very talented indeed. With specialized blade smithing techniques, using their vast experience and knowledge they have combined special elements with the various layers of damascus steel. Upon the final blade treatment, the steel grain rather than finishing to different shades of grey, turns different shades of black, orange, maroon, purples. A sight to behold!

We also offer matching pieces, or you can purchase as a complete set. See below,

      JUNGLE CAT WAKIZASHI - COLORED DAMASCUS STEEL

      Posted by Jonathan Bruce on 4th Apr 2019

      This piece was ordered online and received from my door within 72 hours. The packaging of the product was perfect for courier travel and when opened there was no damage to the piece at all.
      The piece itself was delivered within it's own bag and sheath and was, as expected from Superior Swords, in impeccable condition upon arrival.
      The best thing I can say was there were no surprises at all. Superior Swords knows what they're doing and how to do it.
      Absolutely at the top of their game.
      Would happily endorse not only the amazing range of pieces, but also purchasing from the website.
      10 / 10
