Handmade steel damascus hunting knife – blade is hand forged with 1095 & 15n20 high and low carbon steel with over 252 layers. These two alloys are folded together many times, then dipped in ferric chloride which eats away at the different metals at different rates showing the damascus pattern. This is genuine folded steel, not laser printed. Scores a 58 hrc on the rockwell scale – this metal is tough and ready for work. Creating damascus steel is still unknown to this day. The process has been lost for the past 500 years. Today, we fold several different steels together, dip in ferric chloride which eats away the metals at different rates to show the damascus pattern. Today, we fold several different plates of steel together, dip in ferric chloride which eats away the metals at different rates to show the damascus pattern. We will do whatever reasonable to resolve your problem as long as we are given the opportunity. How to care for damascus blades. How it’s made. Damascus patterns are made by forging or “folding” stainless steels and softer high carbon steel. To bring out the pattern, the blades are placed in an acid bath. During this process, the more corrosive high-carbon steel is eaten away, leaving behind unique patterns. We then seal the blades using a museum-grade wax coating. 4 damascus care tips. Keep damascus clean and free of moisture. Damascus blades will require more attention, since the higher carbon metals that help create the pattern present a higher risk of corrosion. We recommend cleaning the blade after it has come into contact with moisture and especially acidic materials like apples, steak, or fingers. If your knife is in a humid environment, it will rust. The best way to quickly address rust is to spot clean your blade with soft scrub and a q-tip when you first see it appear. If you can see pitting on the blade, it is especially important to keep those spots clean so that more material is not removed. Apply a small amount of wd-40 or a quality oil when the blade is completely dry to help protect against fading and moisture. Our damascus is chemically bonded with stainless steel and several different softer metals, so there is no need to worry about chipping or flaking, but the pattern may still wear over time from regular use. Damascus will maintain its edge for quite a while, but it will dull faster than our standard s35vn blade. We recommend maintaining the edge with the spyderco triangle sharpmaker. This item is made of carbon steel and wood.
