Savoir-Faire

Damascus style is made using eight different types of metal sourced from recycling the intake and exhaust valves of cars and trucks as well as the outer ring of wheel barings. Meticulously tempered several times at a temperature of 1000 C°, the metals merge into 360 layers which create the patterns on the blade. In order to ensure the longevity of the knives, the sharpest part of the blade is dipped in pure drinkable water. A special custom tested and approved in Uzbekistan.
