Damascus steel blades are forged in the tradition of ancient sword makers and are characterized by distinctive patterns of banding and mottling that resemble flowing water. This forging technique creates a strong blade resistant to shattering, and capable of being honed to a sharp, resilient edge.
Our Damascus Steel Blade knife handle is handcrafted from old hard wood coffee trees from the San Lázaro Coffee farm in Honduras. The handcrafted wooden gift box is made from the Alamo tree, also harvested on the San Lazaro Coffee farm in the annual shade management process making sure that as much wood as possible is not wasted and put to good use. These boxes are made in our woodworking shop in Honduras.
The hand tooled leather case highlights the craftsmanship of our artisans. Tooled and stitched 100% by hand, not only is this case going to last a lifetime, it looks great as well.
