Cut your Circle in style with the Twisted Horn Damascus Athame. It comes with a well stitched, tooled, leather sheath and is very much a traditional athame. With a double edged blade and black carved horn handle, this is a substantial knife with heavy brass guard and pommel. 11" in overall length with a 6" double edged damascus steel 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.
