Damascus steel is cut out for the thinking man
The famous philosopher Aristotle lived a full life, advancing global knowledge of every subject, from biology, physics, ethics and beyond. But even Aristotle found time to stop and note the impressive nature of Damascus steel. The steel’s forging was made famous in the ancient city of Damascus, where the technique of pattern welding was perfected to produce swords that became feared throughout the world for their unmatched strength and sharpness. The pattern welding technique involved folding and bonding together different types of metal to create the renowned supersteel which caught Aristotle’s eye.
Pattern welding also creates a distinctive wavy texture on the blade, a feature you can clearly identify on our Philosopher’s Blade. Made with modern Damascus steel and featuring a deep red Pakka wood handle that’s designed to last but also to admire, this thinking man’s knife is an ideal addition to any collection.

The Philosopher''s Blade is a really smart looking well made knife. I bought it as a gift for my adopted son and he was really pleased with it. It is a very unique knife and is a work of art. It to me is much too elegant to carry in one''s pocket. It should be out on permanent display.
