Folded Damascus Steel

Folded Damascus Steel

Folded steel blades, commonly referred to as Damascus steel or pattern-welded steel, are made by hammering the steel flat and folding it over itself repeatedly to create several thousand layers of steel. Most of our Damascus steel swords are folded 13 times, creating 8,192 layers. 

 

Folding was developed in feudal Japan due to the impure metals that were most often used in blacksmithing. The tamahagane needed to be folded over and over again to remove impurities and even out the carbon content of the steel. Today’s modern steel is pure, and folding is only done for tradition's sake or for the aesthetically pleasing flowing grain pattern it creates on the blade.
