Munin Pattern Damascus Blades:The damask blade comes from the superposition of layers of metal. Pounded, stretched and then dipped in acid – which blackens only carbon; artistic curves and patterns appear on the knife blade. This also results in great strength.
The Damascus steel is obtained from the more recent steelmaking method: powder metallurgy. Martensitic stainless Damascus steel obtained this way is equivalent to 116 layers of forged damask.
