True hand forged Damascus steel - Exotic Rosewood burl handle with solid brass
Amazing folded steel blade in a ladder pattern

Damascus steel blades are created by forging 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 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.


This incredible short sword, designed to look like a 1700's pirate sword, is not only stunning in looks, but also rock solid because of a robust hidden full tang construction.
The blade is the result of hours of forging from 1095 and 15N20 high carbon steels into 680 layers, resulting in an amazing ladder pattern that is immediately captivating.
The cutting edge has been heat treated to attain a hardness of 57-59 on the Rockwell scale.
The blade has been given an edge, but for safety reasons not finally sharpened. It can however be sharpened to a razor edge if required.
The exotic Rosewood burl handle gives the sword a dramatic appearance as well as providing excellent grip.
The beautifully shaped hand guard and pommel is formed from solid brass and perfectly compliments the rich tones of the Rosewood.
Accompanying this incredible piece, is a hand tooled thick quality leather sheath, custom made for this sword.
