damascus steel is characterized by it's strength, edge holding ability, and it's dramatic appearance. the damascus steel used in these knives comes from japan and is called "sanmai damascus" or sandwich damascus. there is a core of vg-10 steel with 16 layers of stainless steel on each side to produce a rust free damascus look blade

The power of water, wind and time have worked it's magic at the Nacozari Mine in Sonora, Mexico, just south of Bisbee, Arizona. These forces have created beautiful Vein Turquoise, which runs like a river sandwiched between canyon walls. The host rock, or boulder, offers a wonderful contrast to the Vein Turquoise that it surrounds.
