Damascus Steel:
Damascus steel is a beautifully patterned steel material that was originally produced in the Damascus region of Syria since it was said to be called warts steel. The current Damascus steel produces an elegant ripple to alternately superimpose and polish two kinds of steel materials. Often times the Damascus steel is wrapped around a core metal such as VG-10 or Silver-3 to give the knife additional qualities, whether that be functional or aesthetic.
