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 Range Wars Damascus Steel Pocket Knife features a finely contoured rose wood handle plate with Damascus bolsters and mosaic pin. This spear pointís blade 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.
