Created under the guidance of master knife makers Veneman Blades in St. Augustine, Florida, our exclusive hand-forged folding knives have a blade just under 3", and are perfect for any collector.
Made from the highest quality 1095/15N20 steel, the hand-forged Damascus blades aim for our standard 352 layers of folded and hammered steel. In addition, each knife comes with a handmade leather sheath.
1095 – High Carbon Steel is excellent for forging knives. The carbon content of .95% serves to harden the steel and reduce the amount of wear that a blade will experience over time. Knives that use 1095 Steel are easy to sharpen and hold an edge for a long time.
15N20 – High Nickel Alloy, most commonly used with 1095 Steel to create Damascus. The bright and acid-resistant metal used for forging with high carbon steel draws out the contrast in Damascus patterned billets. 15N20’s iron is alloyed with 0.88% carbon, 0.40% manganese, 2.0% nickel, and 0.10% phosphorus and silicon.
To care for Damascus blades, thoroughly dry them when they become wet, and then lubricate with mineral oil for storage.
