Damascus Steel - A Timeless Beauty since 1100 A.D.

Damascus Steel

On any trip into the back country you're likely to find a man carrying a knife, but why not a knife handcrafted with the finest Damascus Steel?

I guess I'm just the type of guy that finds treasure in things of old and Damascus steel blades are just that. Apparently they've been around since around 1100 A.D. and so why not carry a knife that is handcrafted with fire and fortitude of the ages?

I came upon this article about Damascus Steel and it reminds me that there are things in this world that have come and gone by the wayside. I would hazard a guess that Damascus Steel and the blades that are forged from it will be a tradition that will stand the test of time.

My hope is that if you've never had the pleasure of appreciating the beauty of a hand forged Damascus Steel knife, that you would take the opportunity to do just that.

Take the time to look into the past and revel at the amazing things that have carried forward to today. Take the time to appreciate what we have been given and maybe even ask yourself....what will I leave when I'm gone.....
