Damascus Steel is characterized by it's strength, edge holding ability, and it's dramatic appearance. The Damascus Steel used in our knives comes from Japan and is called "Sanmai Damascus" or Sandwich Damascus. There is a core of vg-10 steel with 16 layers of stainless steel on each side to produce a rust free Damascus look blade. Beautiful and practical.
Fossilized Woolly Mammoth Bone
The material in these knives is fossilized Woolly Mammoth Bone, from Siberia, and over 10-15,000 years old. Woolly Mammoth Bones were used as construction material for dwellings by both Neanderthals and modern Humans during the ice age. Bones were made into various tools, furniture and musical instruments. Large Bones, such as shoulder bones, were also used to cover dead human bodies when buried.
Each knife may vary slightly.
