Make an impression with a beautiful Damascus steel knife in your kitchen!

A Damascus knife is much more than just a beautiful knife. It is also extremely professional and loved by many cooking enthusiasts. The unique pattern on the blade is the result of a high-quality forging technique applied by real connoisseurs. This is how it is made:

  1. Several layers of iron and steel are heated
  2. The heated layers of steel are forged together
  3. The steel layers are folded
  4. The folded steel is beaten flat with a hammer
  5. The process of folding and hammering flat is repeated until the steel consists of several layers of steel that form the wave-like pattern

Literally a fine piece of work!

Damascus steel is known to stay sharp for a long time. This is because damask steel consists of several layers of steel, which guarantees the hardness of the blade. A time-consuming process, but thanks to the different layers and multiple types of steel, an unprecedented hardness of the blade is achieved. This is expressed in HRC. The higher the HRC, the harder the blade.

Buying the best Damascus knife

When buying a Damascus knife, there are a number of things you should pay attention to:
Firstly, it is important to look at the quality of the steel, the more layers the blade has, the more carefully it has been forged and the better the quality.
