Dallas, GA (PRWEB) May 13, 2014
SwordsAxe.com, an online retailer that offers an extensive variety of knives and swords for cosplay, hunting and display, as well as other items for self-defense or martial arts use, recently introduced a new line of Damascus steel knives in a wide variety of styles.
Damascus steel has distinctive swirling patterns in the steel that are formed when the steel is folded hundreds of times during the forging of the blade. A smaller blade has a minimum of 300 folds, while larger blades have as many as 500 to 600 folds. Sometimes, additional metals can be added in during the folding process to add different color or texture.
An ancient art form that has been passed down for generations of metal smiths, Damascus steel has been used in knives, swords, daggers and even gun barrels.
“Not only is Damascus steel beautiful because of its unique swirls, but it’s capable of being sharpened to a razor’s edge,” says Joe Newmeyer, the CTO of SwordsAxe.com. “An expert can sharpen Damascus steel to the point that a hair will split when dropped on the blade. This type of steel is extraordinarily hard, but easy for even a beginner to sharpen.”
Damascus steel also retains its edge well because it contains carbon nanotubes that have a similar structure to diamond—the hardest mineral.
“Our new Damascus steel blade knives are as gorgeous as they are functional,” says Joe Newmeyer.
SwordsAxe.com is pleased to present several different styles of Damascus steel knives, which also come with a genuine leather holster and belt loop. Customers can choose from Damascus knives with a variety of blade shapes, with handles beautifully crafted from bone, buffalo horn and other materials. There are a number of Damascus steel knives on the website now, and more will be added in coming days.
