HAND-FORGED DAMASCUS STEEL
Manufactured with ultra-sharp hand-forged Damascus steel cutting core at HRC58-60 hardness, this Shokunin USA knife comes with unrivaled performance and incredible edge retention; Damascus steel outperforms high carbon steel in durability and is easier to sharpen as a mix of high chromium steel enhances the other alloying elements.
ERGONOMIC & WELL-BALANCED
12” the hollow ground blade is lightweight and compliments the handle in maintaining balance and helps to alleviate fatigue and pains on your fingers after use with comfort while providing you with the perfect blend of performance and comfort.
ULTIMATELY DURABLE HANDLE
The meticulously constructed handle has gone through special treatment, making it extremely impervious to heat, moisture, and cold with military-grade strength and life-long sturdiness; multiple times riveted for extra resilience,
The ruthlessly sharp edge is handcrafted by seasoned artisans to a mirror polish at 12-15° per side using the traditional 3-step honing method; Nitrogen is cooled for ultimate hardness, flexibility, and performance.
HAND-FORGED DAMASCUS BLADES:
Damascus blades are hand forged through a process of layering, melting, and hammering. This results in each blade having a unique design or as some would say a “fingerprint”. Each & every knife is truly one of a kind.
The handmade Damascus 12 Inch Bowie knife has outstanding properties of strength and hardness. We amplify its properties by oil quenching it at 2100 deg F to cool it down fast and we do it twice to make sure it’s hard to its inner core to withstand any kind of work you may put it to use. It achieves a 58 or higher HRC on the Rockwell Scale.
Producing Damascus steel is still unknown to this day, the process has been lost over the past 500 years. Today, we layer & hand forge two different sheets of steel 15n20 & 1095. It is then dipped in Ferric Chloride creating a distinct reaction with the metals producing a Damascus-like pattern.
