Knife with wooden shisham handle, Damascus steel blade

This knife has a blade forged from 280 layers of stainless steel. The handle

is made of shisham wood. At the end of the handle is a hole for an aiguillette.

The terms Damascus steel or pattern welded designate a compound steel forged out of

two or more different types of steel. It is named after its birthplace, the Syrian

city of Damascus, a former stronghold of the patterned steel production.

As a common practice, a harder high carbon steel and a milder low carbon steel are

repeatedly forge welded and folded together. The high carbon steel ensures a higher

hardness, a better temperability and longer lasting edge retention, whereas the

milder steel confers greater blade flexibility and tensile strength. This procedure,

which arose in a time where steel qualities were often low and inconsistent, enables

to combine the positive attributes of the various steel grades.

Besides, the different shadings generated by the varying carbon content of the

alternating layers engender strikingly beautiful patterns, such as the twisted motif

called Torsion Damascus pattern or the Rose Damascus pattern. Undoubtedly, these

unusual patterns partly explain why inherent magical properties were attributed to

the Damascus steel blades of the Middle Ages. Such a damascene sword blade is for

example depicted as a bloody worm or a poisonous snake in the Edda.
