This is a beautifully crafted White Deer Executive Strait-Back Damascus Steel Knife. Damascus for this knife was created by forge welding multiple layers of steels into a Solid block called a billet (15N20 &1095 High Carbon Tool Steels). The billet is folded and re-welded several times to produce several layers. Patterns are created by manipulating the steel during the forge welding process. When acid is added to the blade, it attacks the layers of hard and soft steels differently, highlighting the attractive layered pattern in the Steel.The combination of layered hard and soft steel creates blade flexibility, toughness and produces invisible serrations on the blade that aid cutting. The hardness of the Damascus steel is 55-60 HRC on Rockwell scale. The handle is full tang, made of bison/buffalo bone and hardwood with an ornate solid brass spacer. There are also brass pins fixing the grip to the tang. This White Deer Executive Strait-Back Damascus Steel Knife comes with a genuine leather sheath, with a belt loop on one end. This knife is a must have for any hunter or outdoors-man!
***Care and maintenance for your Damascus Steel blade: Before storing your knife, please coat it with vegetable oil or Vaseline to prevent rusting or drying of the forged steel. If you have just cleaned your knife, you should dry it immediately and then apply the vegetable oil or Vaseline. Other cooking oils can be substituted for vegetable oil, such as coconut oil.
