Weight: 100 grams Damascus steel, properly made, is one of the finest cutting tool materials. This quality stems from the use of two or more types of steel, each having it's own traits and grades of harden ability, toughness, abrasion resistance, etc. Once combined into multiple alternating layers, heat treated and tempered, the final product exhibits a strength, toughness and sharpness that cannot compare with other single steel blades.
Several of the knives also have intricate silver inlay designs on the handles and blades.
Each item is a unique work of art.
