There's a long history of Damascus Steel being used for making knives, swords, daggers, etc.  It originally started in the Near East, and was later introduced in the city of Damascus, where a thriving weapon economy was prevalent.  The making of the Damascus steel blade was a lost art form for the past few centuries, but has been revived over the past few decades.  Though the type of steel used is typically not the original wootz steel used in the earlier years, modern day metalsmiths have mastered the art form of pattern welding, where different types of steel are used to form a billet.  The billet is then folded multiple times to create layers that form the beautiful patters found in Damascus Steel. The procedure is fairly basic: the steel ingots form billets that are folded in multiple layers within other metal types. In fact, the steel may be folded several hundred times in some cases.  This process is not something that is mass produced and speaks to the craftsmanship and skill of the artisan making these beautifully designed blades.

We've always appreciated the unique and beautiful design that Damascus Steel Knives have, which is why we've added a new collection of Damascus Steel Knives into our store.  We've partnered with BucknBear Knives to create a beautiful collection of knives that range from a simple pocket knife, dagger, or hunting knife.  Here are a few of the knives we have in the store to give you some ideas.
