Damascus swords and knives were of legendary sharpness and strength, and were apocryphally claimed to be able to cut through lesser quality weapons and even rock. Skilled swordsmiths can manipulate the layered patterns to mimic the complex designs found in the surface of the original, medieval Damascus steel. The Mountain View Damascus Steel Bone Pocket Knife features a finely contoured stained bone handle plate with a etched mountain view with a hunter bolster to give a unique design to this piece. This blade’s technique is characterized by distinctive patterns of banding and mottling reminiscent of dripping and flowing water. Black steel rivets hold the handle together for durable long lasting use. A brass liner locking mechanism ensures the blade will always stay in place with brass walls. This knife comes with a tooled leather sheath with a snap closure for holding the handle in place and a belt loop featuring two reinforcing studs for a sturdy hold.
