Interesting information about Damascus Steel:
Damascus steel is an advanced form of shaping steel, derived from centuries-old forging technique used to create blades that became almost legendary in their reputation for strength and sharpness. Recognized by the distinctive pattern on the surface of the metal, the stratified layers of steel are reminiscent of flowing water.
~ Store in a dry place, moisture encourages rust. Damascus is very easy to clean if rusted.
~ After use, wash and dry the blade & apply vegetable oil, or any food safe lubricating oil.
~ To maintain a beautiful finish, clean the brass on the handle with a brass cleaner (e.g Brasso).
~ Sometimes Damascus steel darkens with age. To brighten up the blade, sand it lengthwise with a worn piece of sand paper. This just hits the raised portions of the etched pattern and makes the blade look brighter.
