Forged damasc, pattern welding, is a type of steel resulting from repeated forging of mild steel with low carbon content, with hard steel with high carbon content. The difference in carbon content must be significant for the characteristic pattern to become visible.
Our knives are forged from over 1000 layers of steel (among others SHK15 and HVG), thanks to which they have unique usability. Hardening up to 62 HRC allows for long and smooth work without frequent sharpening.
The hard, high-carbon part is for sharpness, the soft, low-carbon part for flexibility.
