In new condition - 21st century - Pakistan.

Beautiful and completely handmade, very long and sturdy/solid hunting knife in Damask steel, including a sturdy leather sheath.

The history of Damask steel goes back hundreds of years The legend mentions Damask steel knives that are so strong they can cleave a gun barrel in two and that they can split a falling hair in two. These are of course legends but they do indicate that these are special knives

The pattern on the blade is unique for each knife, this is due to the artisanal melting process that lies at the base of this knife. Typical of the steel of a Damascus knife, is the pattern that resembles running water.

The handle/grip of this hunting knife is made of buffalo bone. The pommel and hand guard are made of solid Damask steel. The combination of horn and Damask steel gives the knife a powerful and classy appearance. The knife is in new condition, has never been used.

Technical specifications:
Hand-forged blade of 1095 and 15N20 high-carbon and high-chromium steel with more than 200 layers.
Hardness of the steel: 58 - 60 HRC on the Rockwell scale.

Maintaining the knife:
Damask steel is a very special, artisanal product with a high carbon (carbon) value. As a result, Damask knives require special care for use and it’s best, when washing the knife, that no detergent is used. It is recommended to clean these knives with water every time after cutting food, to dry them off and then rub some (olive) oil on them. This is how they retain their natural quality. It's also recommended to not store the knife for long in the sheath, so that the oil stays on the blade.

Dimensions:
Total length: 38.5 cm.
Length blade : 25 cm.
Blade thickness: 0.3 cm.
Blade width: 5 cm (widest point).

Weight without the sheath: 588g.
Weight with sheath: 708g.

Will be shipped registered with track and trace code.

    After having received only very positive feedbacks on our sold items, this would be the very first time anyone would not be fully satisfied with the items. All our items are always very carefully finished and of very good quality.

    Very important: this buyer never send any pictures to prove anything would not be perfectly in order. Therefore, this claim should not be taken seriously in any way.

    The knives are exactly as we discribed. We made 27 pictures of the knife in the auction, from each angle possible. From close and from far. In order to make it very easy for the buyer to see exactly what each knife is, we hide nothing. You can see each part perfectly. Did the buyer check the pictures carefully? The pictures are the exact same items like he received. We are proud of our products and we are always trying to show and write in the text exactly what we sell.

    In the message, buyer stated that he dis-arranged every blade of the set, so he already damaged the lot significantly. In conclusion: not serious and not trustworthy
