About Damascus Steel

Pattern welded or “Damascus” steel is a process of forging and folding two or more different steels into one billet or bar.  Modern Damascus steel evolved from the centuries-old sword-making techniques of folding and forging raw steel to refine its grain structure and greatly improve its performance.

In modern times, this process has been refined to create blades that have incredible performance in terms of edge holding, sharpen-ability and toughness. The process has evolved to create blades of exquisite beauty that have lifted the craft to the level of art.

The skill and precision to weld different steels into a tool both beautiful and effective requires a virtuosity akin to the great craftsmen and artists of any medium.

At New West KnifeWorks, we create more exotic blade patterns than you will find anywhere else. From chef and kitchen knives to hunting and camping knives, our finished hand-forged Damascus knives are heirloom-treasures to be enjoyed both for their performance and beauty.
