Oaks Bottom Forge is introducing a new line of Damascus steel, hand-finished knives. Damascus, also known as 'pattern welded steel', is the result of combining at least two different types of steel that harden and temper in the same heat range to achieve a desired aesthetic that looks like frozen flowing water.
Originally created as a technique in what is now referred to as the Middle East before the time of Christ, Damascus has a complex creation process and requires a tremendous amount of time and concentration to produce a high performance tool.
We hand-finish all our Damascus knives with the same care and intention we put into our hand-forged collection by carefully selecting our Damascus blades and then adding our own unique touches with our signature designs and handles on those blades.
We truly believe that you will enjoy not only the sheer beauty of these heirlooms, but the functionality in everyday use.
