Sands of Cairo Reveal a Blade of Adventure
Camel bone and Damascus steel combine for a knife without parallel!
It may not be the most comfortable way to get around, but when it comes to traversing the desert, the camel is still the way to go. In the sand, the dromedary remains your best means of transport. Still, they’re not the most pleasant experience, as I recently found out on a trip to Cairo. It’s a bit like sitting in a rocking chair that’s been strapped to the top of a lifeguard tower that’s being dragged through rough terrain. And that’s to say nothing of the smell. Realizing my ride to the pyramids had left me a little green under the gills, Ahmed, my tour guide, took his pocketknife out from his pack and offered it to me as a gesture of friendship. With a handle made of burned genuine camel bone and a blade of modern Damascus steel, this unique knife is sure to stand out in a crowd. Damascus blades were legendary in ancient times for their longevity, resistance to shattering, and for having the sharpest edges in the known world. The next time you’re considering a stroll through the desert atop a smelly beast, consider having the Cairo Desert Blade as a good luck charm.
