Damascus Blade Katana Origin

Damascus steel is a well-known material for making swords, and it comes from Damascus, the capital of Syria. It is also known as pattern-welded steel because of the unique patterns that appear in the sword-making process. 

In Syria, the skilled smiths develop a sword-making technique that is still respected because of the results - exceptionally strong and resilient swords, like no others!

Historians track the Damascus steel up to 3 century AD. Since then, the Damascus steel Katanas gained the reputation of invincible swords in the arms of skilled swordsmen.

So many techniques are included in this time-consuming tedious process, and the ending patterns look like water waves or clouds. Those are also signs if you want to check for the authenticity of your blade.
