Handmade Damascus Steel Gut Hook Hunting Knife with Stag Antler Handle & Sheath
Damascus for this knife was created by forge welding multiple layers of steel(s) into a solid block called a billet (15N20 &1095 high carbon tool steels). The billet is folded and re-welded several times to produce several layers. Patterns are created by manipulating the steel during the forge welding process. When acid is added to the blade, it attacks the layers of hard and soft steels differently, highlighting the attractive layered pattern in the steel. The combination of layered hard and soft steel creates blade flexibility, toughness and produces invisible serrations on the blade that aid in cutting. The hardness of the Damascus steel is 55-60 HRC on Rockwell scale. Excellent and exclusive Damascus hunting knife!

This is a beautiful knife, one of six Damascus knives I recently purchased as gifts. All but one were made by the same people and all where beautiful. It fits great in the palm, finger hole is perfectly positioned. Came well oiled. Wooden handle is smooth and has a beautiful grain. Recipient absolutely loved it.
Very impressive knife to handle. Looks great and I can't wait to use it Small item to consider is the finger hole is well machined but could use some rounding on the edges for comfort.
