This is a Damascus knife made for us by an independent smith. This knife is based on a clip point knife, these date back to at least Macedonian times, where examples of knapped flint clip point knives have been unearthed at the estuary of Drim. This is a much more modern approach, with Damascus steel and polished handles of various colours and materials. They're a modern celebration of something that dates back as far as 700BC.
Our knives are not etched, but made from real billet Damascus steel and etched with our Raven Forge logo to give them a truly stunning finish. The handle is made of Wenge which has a really aesthetic natural, deep textured finish, the handles are not argon welded, they are full tang Damascus from top to Butt.
