- FORGED NOT FORAGED -
Surrounded by secrecy, Damascus steel has an aura like no other material. Legend has it that, the original blade of a Damascus sword can cut cleanly with another sword and will still sever a hair falling on it. Damascus steel has achieved a mythical status, as the knowledge needed to produce this ancient material was lost in the early 1800s. Knives hand crafted for Forest to Fork, by three generations of Syrian craftsman, use the finest modern steels and alloys (15N20, 1095 and 5160). The different alloys are heated and then forge welded together before being folded over and forge welded again. This produces a laminated material that has an amalgam of the characteristics of the materials that went into its creation. It also produces the unique patterns that make these knives so beautiful.
