Interesting Facts About Damascus

Damascus steel is a famed type of steel recognizable by the watery or wavy light and dark pattern of the metal. Aside from being beautiful, Damascus steel is valued because it maintains a keen edge, yet is hard and flexible. Weapons made from Damascus steel are vastly superior to weapons formed from iron!

  • Damascus steel is the name of a steel Islamic craftsman from around 750-945 CE.

  • The steel bears a wavy pattern, so it is also called Persian watered steel.

  • Damascus steel is beautiful, very sharp, and very tough. It was superior to other alloys used for swords at the time.

  • Modern Damascus steel is not the same as the original metal. While it may be made using the same techniques, the original Damascus steel used a metal called wootz steel.

  • Wootz steel does not exist today, but moden blades made using high-carbon steel and forged with pattern-welding approximate Damascus steel.
