The Damascus steel blades are reputed to be not only tough but sharp and resilient edge. Damascus steel is placed in layers and heated and fused together by hammering. The steel is folded and this arduous process is repeated until hundreds of layers are achieved. It may be then twisted and reheated and flattened again. this produces patterns in the steel which is stunning in its natural design. The folds that cross the cutting edge, hard then soft, hard then soft, create a saw like serrated, edge. This in addition gives Damascus its sharpness. It’s especially relevant to add Damascus knives, viewed by some to be superior to stainless steel knives. These handmade knives are uniquely made and no one knife is ever like the other, giving each knife it’s original character.
Knife Care Tips:
Care Damascus steel properly to prevent rust.
To prevent rust here are some tips; do not store folding knife for long periods in the leather sheath. If you wash the folding knife, do so in warm soapy water. Therefore, do not soak folding knife in water. Wash and dry immediately. Oil or wax the blade to prevent rust also wrap in a soft cloth and store. Wipe excess oil or wax before placing in the leather sheath.
For long term storage, store folding knife with the leather sheath, not in it. Do not use oils with silicone in it, as this can cause rust. If rust appears, rub the blade with a metal polish like Brasso or a very fine steel wool, then oil or wax the blade. Wood handles usually benefit from a light coating of furniture wax and a good hand rubbing. In conclusion, some recommended oils and waxes for the protection and lubrication of the blade. Camellia oil, mineral oil, carnauba wax or simple vaseline. While some may rather use other oils and applications, these are safe to use and will not harm you if you were to have residue on the blade while some other applications maybe harmful if consumed. Also, for chef knives, you can simply use cooking oil- no salt.
