Damascus Steel

1045 is formed with a low amount of carbon and is less likely to break than harder steels. Harder steels hold an edge longer

than 1045.

1060 is formed with a higher carbon content than 1045 steel. It is less likely to break than harder steels, yet it can retain a

sharper edge longer than 1045 steel.

1095 is formed with a high amount of carbon, and it can hold a sharp edge for a longer time than many other steels. 1095

steel is so hard it can chip if used to strike hard objects.

The hamon is an area treated during the forging process that makes the sword’s edge harder, and creates a wavy line along

the edge. The hamon can be added to 1045 and 1060 steel. A Hamon can be added with or without a blood groove.

Blood Groove

Damascus is formed by combing the alloys of different steel to minimize impurities. Damascus is best used for display purpose

and not for striking, as the blade may weaken along the figured steel lines.
