In new condition - late 20th century - Pakistan

Country: Pakistan
Type: Dagger
Period: 20th - late
Condition: New

Beautiful, fully hand-made, long (32.5 cm) and sturdy hunting knife in Damask steel, including sturdy leather sheath.

The history of damask steel goes back hundreds of years. The legend mentions damask knives that are so strong that they can cleave a gun barrel in two and that they can split a falling hair. 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 Damask knife, is the pattern that resembles running water.

The handle of this hunting dagger is made from beech wood, the pommel and the guard are also from solid damask steel. The combination of beechwood and damask steel gives the knife a powerful and classy appearance. The knife is in mint 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, artisan product with a high 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 that the knife be cleaned with water after each use, then once it is dry, it should be coated with a layer of (olive) oil. 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.

Full length: 32.5 cm.
Blade length: 19.5 cm
Blade thickness: 0.3 cm.
Width blade: 4 cm (widest point).

Weight without sheath: 425 g.

    Snelle bezorging van schitterend mes. Het was alleen beter geweest om het mes in de schede te versturen. De punt is nu namelijk verbogen doordat hij door beschermkapje en doos is gesneden...
