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. This process is not something that is mass produced and speaks to the craftsmanship and skill of the artisan making these beautifully designed blades. This attention to detail is why we chose to have this beautiful straight razor made out of Damascus steel and why it's the perfect accessory any gentleman can appreciate.
