Damascus steel hand forged with combinations of 1095 High Carbon Steel and 15N20 forming over 275+ layers. We oil quench and temper to a hardness of 56-58 Rockwell C. Some of the many Damascus steel advantages include the following: Blade edge resistance from the harder steel, micro serrations from the alternating layers, ductility from the 15N20.
Wash and dry the blade of all corrosive liquids after use. Apply oil ( for eg. Gun Oil) to preserve and protect the blade from rusting. DO NOT store the knife in the provided sheath for a long period (>1 week).
Upon wear use ceramic stones to re-sharpen the blade. Other belt systems (for eg. Worx) also work well and give excellent results.
