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 blacks, oranges, & reds. A sight to behold!
