Damascus steel was of legendary sharpness and strength, and were apocryphally claimed to be able to cut through lesser quality European swords and even rock. Our Regal Stag Damascus Steel Pocket Knife is constructed of Damascus steel with a tight twist pattern that was forged by layering steel then folding it over and over to get the unique pattern on the blade. A great benefit to the Regal Stag Damascus Steel Pocket Knife is the ambidextrous thumb stud on this trail point in style blade. The thumb stud can also be removed and put on the opposite side for left handed users. To accentuate the blade the handle is constructed with genuine stag and a Damascus bolster. Stag handles are made out of naturally shed deer antlers, which makes these handles increasingly rarer and costlier. However, two of the major advantages of stag are that the rough texture makes a sturdy grip and the shape of the antler gives it natural curves. The handle is double walled with a brass liner locking mechanism ensures the blade will always stay in place. The carry all leather sheath has been hand sewn with a brass stud closure and includes a belt loop to carry you blade with you at all times. The Regal Stag Damascus Steel Pocket Knife is timeless and will be a piece to treasure.
