When you look at Damascus blades side by side, the first thing you’ll notice is that no two are exactly alike. Damascus steel blades are known and sought out for their banded designs. The striations and waves found in Damascus steel are not the result of etching a blade after it is forged. Instead, Damascus knife blades get their signature stripes during the steelmaking process, meaning that these eye-catching designs are unique and intrinsic to each blade. Although there is some debate in the metallurgy community over the origins and history of Damascus blades, their iconic beauty is one thing everyone can agree on.
