Knife - Damascus Steel Fixed 7.25" Blade with Scrimshaw


Full tang carbon Damascus steel blade and bolster with Ox Bone scales. Scrimshaw by our resident artist and store owner Brian Kiracofe.

Damascus steel is a process of combining steels of different properties, which is then hammered and folded many times, producing a blade of extraordinary toughness and edge-holding ability. It is recommended you apply a lite machine or gun oil to the blade, especially after use. 

The practice of scrimshaw began on whaling ships when the crew members were out at sea for unbearably long periods of time. They would engrave onto the whale's teeth to pass the time. Our store owner and resident artist, Brian Kiracofe, uses his scrimshaw skills to create the beautiful designs on each authentic scrimshaw piece.
