A Damascus knife provides extreme strength and ultimate sharpness. We stock all the popular knife shapes in our Stellar Damascus steel knives range including a paring knife, carving knife and utility knives.
Damascus steel knives are made using a high carbon steel core surrounded by in this case 33 layers of Damascus steel, the steel in a Damascus knife is folded, hammered flat, then folded and hammered again and again. Traditionally the outer layers are softer stain-resistant stainless steel which cushions and protects the extremely hard central core which provides the sharp cutting edge , this is what gives Damascus knives their strength and unparallelled cutting edge. This process is what also gives these Damascus knives their distinctive attractive 'rippled water' effect. These knives are not recommended for dishwashers.
