Each blade is composed of two steels layered 110 times to create a dual blade core. Unlike other designs that use an outer cladding of steel to achieve this number of layers, this is actually a combination of two different steels. All folded to create a beautiful Big Rose Damascus Pattern.
The steels in question are 10Cr15CoMoV and 9Cr18MoV. These combine to create a blade that has consistent sharpness and a good resistance to corrosion. Due to the tempering process this steel combination can be hardened to 58-62 on the Rockwell scale making it great for kitchen knives.
This hardness range is a balance between edge hardness and ease of sharpening. If the hardness was increased you will run a great risk of chipping and damaging the blade. If you go softer, the edge is more likely to roll over and dull.
The handles are dehorned and ergonomic to help make the knife comfortable to use for long periods of time. There’s nothing worse than having to use a knife that creates a hotspot on your hand for a few hours.
The handles are also made from North American Desert Ironwood and a Synthetic Ox Bone decoration. This offsets the beautiful Damascus pattern on the blade while also creating a durable handle that will last for a long time.
The 8.5 inch Damascus Chef knife is a great example of a traditional Western-style Chef Knife. This blade shape is excellent for your medium to large cutting tasks. It can handle slicing fruits, vegetables and meat in addition to dicing and some light chopping.
The 5 inch Damascus Utility knife deals with the tasks that your Chef knife won’t handle. While the blade is similar to a Chef knife, it lacks the blade length and the associated cutting power. Medium to small tasks are where it really shines, cutting and preparing meats and vegetables for cooking.
