One “must” conversation topic duting my tours is “What cad n I buy here that I cannot find anywhere else?”. My answers are always the same: marzipan, damascening and damascus steel kitchen knives?
What does Damascus Steel consist of?
Damascus Steel is not about the steel origin by itself but about the knife consruction technique, and it consists of a process to integrate a multilayer blade onto the knife. This blade contains, in the case of Toledo, up 70 layers of steel. So the resut is a very hard a durable knife, and if you give right care dont need to sharp in years.
