New condition - 21st century - Handmade in South Asia

Set of three beautiful, handmade chefs knives made from damask steel.

Each knife has an unique pattern as they were handmade in an artisan way.
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 handle is made of camel bone.
Are in new condition and have never been used.
Our company imports these knives exclusively from South Asia. They are not available in stores.

Technical characteristics:
Hand-forged sharp blade of 1095 and 15N20 high and low carbon steel, with more than 200 layers damask steel.
Detailed forging process (checked with optical lens).
Precision heat treatment methods were used so that the sharpest edges are visible.
Hardness of the steel of the chef’s knives: 55 HRC on the Rockwell scale.
Characteristics of the knives: sharp, durable and rust resistant.

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.

Will be shipped via registered mail with track and trace code.

    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...

    dear sir,

    The items are exactly as we discribed.
    The main issue here is that you bought a Damast knife and did not look up how to take care of it. Damast steel needs to be oiled after use. you'll have no problem finding this info in great detail when you google it.

    best regards,
