Damascus Steel Knife Sets Offer More for Less
Damascus steel performs significantly better than other materials when chopping, cutting, and slicing. This performance edge is due to the Damascus creation process, giving it a significant advantage over other materials.
Creating Damascus steel involves heating steel to an extreme 2,300°F, then applying pressure to combine two pieces into one. This steel is then repeatedly folded to craft the trademark multilayered Damascus pattern.
The best part is? This exceptional innovation is also affordable. For instance, the ONYX Essential Damascus Steel Knife Set and the ONYX Series Damascus Steel Knife Set can be purchased for under four hundred dollars, making it economically viable to upgrade your chef knife set.

History Of Damascus Knives
Damascus Steel has been around for many centuries, and since its inception, it has wowed everyone who has wielded the material just like in a utility knife.
In antiquity, the art of crafting Damascus steel first blossomed in the heart of Ancient South India, where their steelmaking prowess outshone all others. This exceptional technology soon found its way to the Middle East, where the steel gained legendary status, with its blades often shrouded in the secrecy of dynastic treasures. Today, the original Damascus steel-making technique remains shrouded in history's enigmatic mist. Yet, the allure of its mesmerizing textures lives on, thanks to modern forging techniques, processes, and materials that may differ from their Indian predecessors.
One realm where this legacy thrives is Japan, renowned for its mastery in forging Katana swords and Kitchen knives, including the coveted Sushi knives. Japan's expertise has enabled them to imbue Damascus blades with extraordinary sharpness and captivating beauty. We are delighted to introduce these remarkable Japanese-made Damascus knives, a testament to the enduring artistry and innovation within this ancient craft.
Mysterious History In India
The secrets of creating the Damascus knife sit in the misty annals of Southern India. Although some thought the origin of the Damascus steel blade dates back to the 1800s, the mysterious ‘wootz’ steel blade produced in regions around India and Sri Lanka has a much longer past.
When Did Damascus Steel Appear For The First Time?
Believe it or not, the artistry of Damascus steel took shape far earlier than the 18th century. Its origin traces back to the 'wootz' steel from the medieval era, steeped in deep history going even beyond that. Evidence of Iron processing in India, dating around 1000 BCE, has led experts to theorize that the sophisticated process of creating crucible steel may have started as early as 300 BCE and may have even been used by Alexander the Great.
Damascus Kitchen Knives Today
In our modern age, Damascus is used not primarily for combat but for cooking and cutlery. Its durable design and sharpness make it the perfect tool for any kitchen. But the most notable change over the year is the availability of Damascus knives like a paring knife, chef knive, fillet knife, utility knife, steak knives + more!
Once commonly only used by royal families and elite nobles is now available for everyone and can be purchased and delivered to your home within 48 hours. Unfortunately, many tend to overlook the material for stainless steel, which cannot provide the same performance.
