We forge all of our own damascus steel right in the USA from 1095 and 15N20 (1075 with 2% nickel). No off shore tin can lid, mild steel junk blades come from our shops.
After forging, all blades are normalized, profiled, annealed, surface ground, bevel ground, polished, heat treated to an RC 58-59, buffed, etched, final buffed, sharpened (factory edge), cleaned, oiled, and inspected at least 3 times along the way before being shipped.
We grind blades from 1/2" to 40" long. Our blades are Mar-Quenched in our state-of-the-art heat treating system for 20% greater toughness and superior edge holding. The tangs are usually mild steel.
