The Elegant Damascus Athame has a 7" damascus steel, double edged blade and is 12 3/8" in overall length. The traditional black handle is made of knurled pakkawood, an impregnated wood veneer, with a stainless guard and brass inlay. It comes with an embossed brown leather belt sheath.
During the forging process, damascus steel in doubled over, welded, redoubled, and rewelded until the various layers of steel become intertwined, resulting in distinctive and complex patterns. Damascus is not stainless and will rust if not cared for appropriately. Be sure to wipe the blade clean of any fingerprints or other material before sheathing it.
