We’ve worked hard to perfect our Damascus recipe and learned that it cannot be done by machine. It requires the skill of a veteran artisan, fire, steel, a hammer and lots of time. The knives are forged and shaped by hand with meticulous attention to detail and a deeply-rooted respect for the metallurgic art. Our Damascus is forged in-house from a proprietary four steel mix based on 15N20 and 1080 Steel. Most blades are 300-400 layers with a Rockwell hardness of 57-58 HRC.
