The Damascus Steel is kind of a laminate Damascus with Damascus layers on both sides of the high carbon Stainless Steel core in the middle which assures the cutting and edge holding quality of the knife. It is actually a fusion of 3 different steels/metals with a total of 71 layers of steel thus giving it its characteristic look and appearance.
