This blade will look lovely in the fire light. Our Damascus Sgian Dubh is a simple yet striking athame with a double edged damascus steel blade with matching damascus guard and pommel. It has a brown hardwood handle and comes equipped with a double stitched pouch sheath with a belt loop. 9.5" in overall length with a 4.5" sharpened blade.
During the forging process, damascus steel is doubled over, welded, redoubled, and rewelded until the various layers of steel become intertwined, resulting in distinctive and complex patterns. Damascus steel is not only beautiful, but strong, and holds a sharp edge. It 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. Avoid long term storage in the sheath. Keeping the blade lightly oiled is advisable. Any light machine oil will do.
