For Lilienstahl Damascus blades, we hand-forge hard steel with excellent edge-holding properties and elastic steel into Damascus steel.
During the complex manufacturing process, the different types of steel, which vary in terms of their carbon content, are forge-welded into a bar in the blacksmith’s fire. The steel layers are doubled and forge-welded over and over again which multiplies the number of layers. This creates the exceptional and typical patterns, which make every single blade unique.
High quality Lilienstahl Damascus knives don’t only impress by their outstanding design, but stand out due to their lasting sharpness, their tenacity and their hardness.
