The technology for producing Damascus steel has been around for 2,500 years. In ancient times, it was used to forge blades of extraordinary strength and sharpness.
Damascus steel consists of multiple superimposed layers steel. This steel composite is not only hard, but also elastic, and it is particularly suitable for the production of high-quality knives.
Hoesch Hohenlimburg is working on the newest generation of materials for such cutting tools. The Multibond composite material can be used to re-engineer the attributes of the characteristically grained Damascus steel blades. The high-quality knives guarantee longer blade life, offer extreme fracture toughness, and are highly decorative.
