Damascus steel


The technique to create the steel that has everything was developed a few hundred years before the birth of Christ. Its properties were unique – an unbeatable strength combined with durability. The steel’s patterned surface was also more beautiful than anything before. The so-called Damascus steel established a superior reputation. Sword blades, daggers and spears of Damascus steel were reliable in battle. Chiefs and powerful rulers with such weapons in their hand were thought to be almost impossible to defeat. Damascus steel was not just a sign of power and wealth; the steel also has long thought to have mystical qualities.

The forge welding technique – layering two types of steel in seven sheets – was developed and refined over time. Creating Damascus steel’s magical design involves the finest smith craftsmanship and is proof of ultimate craftsmanship.
