Background of Damascus Steel knife?
Damascus knives are knives made from Damascus steel. It is the technique used to make the steel that marks them as ‘Damascus’ rather than the designs on the knife. Damascus knives can be identified by the wavy, mottled pattern than runs through the blade.
Most high-end Damascus steel kitchen knives are known for their sharpness and ability to maintain their edge well. This is because they are made from a hard steel sandwiched between softer steel. The hard steel creates a sharp edge, while the softer steel acts as protection.
When we have Wilfred Gorski designing for Boker, the product has to be classic yet glamorous. This one-of-a kind knife is worth buying.
