True hand forged Damascus steel - Buffalo horn handle

Damascus steel blades are created by forge welding multiple layers of various steels into a solid block called a billet.
The billet is then folded and re-welded many times to create multiple layers and patterns.
When acid is applied to the blade, it attacks the layers of hard and soft steels differently, highlighting the attractive layered patterns in the steel.
The combination of layered hard and soft steels creates blade flexibility, hardness and durability and produces invisible serrations on the cutting edge that aid in cutting.

The blade of this custom knife has been hand forged from 1095 and 15N20 high carbon steels and the cutting edge heat treated to attain a hardness of 58-60 on the Rockwell scale.
A beautiful twist pattern is the result of many hours of forging, twisting and re-layering, resulting in over 250 true layers.
The handle is constructed from buffalo horn, with brass pins.
Accurate hand file work is visible throughout the length of the spine.
The cutting edge of the blade has been sharpened to a razor's edge.
