Damascus camp knife with sheath


At Fire & Ice Outdoor Gear we call this our "Famous Knife" and for good reason.  It is the first knife we ever designed, the knife was used & seen on survival tv shows and to this day, it is still our best seller!


Blade Details

This knife is made from Pattern welded Damascus steel.  Pattern welded Damascus steel is a hard heat treated, folded carbon steel.  There are 11 pieces of steel, folded five times, making 352 layers. The steel is the perfect combination of hardness and durability with a Rockwell hardness rating between 55 and 56 HRC.  High carbon damascus steel must contain layers of high carbon steel. The high carbon steel we use is 1095 steel which is the highest content carbon steel used in swords. The combination of the steel layers creates a blade that is strong enough to hold a powerful edge while having the strength and flexibility to withstand powerful collisions. The handle is Olivewood. It comes with a leather sheath.
