At HomeTown Knives we only use the finest materials and perform multiple quality checks to make sure the items shipped out of the door are items we are proud of. Damascus steel is hand forged with combinations of 1095 High Carbon Steel and 4340 HT forming between 276 and 950 layers. We oil quench and temper to a hardness of 57-58 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 HT 4340 layer.
- Store in a dry environment and NOT in the sheath for a long period of time to prevent rust.
- Oil or use Flitz polish to keep the shine and prevent the blade from rusting
- To sharpen use 22 - 25 deg angles or finer grit stones to hone the edge
