The swedish Damasteel is a special form of industrially produced Damascus. The company from Uppland has developed a process by which powder metallurgical steels can be combined in the ongoing production process to form a genuine Damascus steel. Powder-metallurgical steels can be alloyed to a higher degree by the special manufacturing process and have a particularly fine and above all uniform microstructure, a basic requirement for high cutting performance. The Damasteel manufacturing process combines the advantages of powder metallurgical steels with the fascinating appearance of Damascus and thus occupies a special position among Damascus steels. Despite the exclusively industrial production process, Damasteel definitely represents a particularly high-quality Damascus steel, which is also convincing in use due to its high cutting durability and pronounced corrosion resistance.
