DAMASCUS SERIES – SILVER STAG Damascus steel is manufactured by forge welding multiple layers of high carbon steels into a solid block called a billet, (SILVER STAG contains 1095 & 15N20 high carbon tool steels). The billet is folded and re-welded several times to produce layers, (SILVER STAG Damascus = 150 to 250 layers). Patterns are created by manipulating the steel during the forge welding process, (SILVER STAG offers a random and twist pattern). The blades are hand profiled from the layered steel billet block. The combination of layered hard and soft steels creates blade flexibility, toughness, and produces invisible serrations on the edge that aid cutting. SILVER STAG Damascus blades are extremely functional and durable. The nickel in the 15N20 steel keeps corrosion at bay, but the blades can and will rust if they are not occasionally oiled.
An upgraded, hand laced leather sheath is included with every style.
