The reputation of Damascus steel goes back as far as the 3rd century, to ancient Syria. Without getting into the nerdier aspects of metallurgy, there's a good reason it was highly prized by the weaponsmiths of old.
These days, you can still get a taste of its distinctive look in this Hand-Forged Damascus Steel Chef Knife Set.
That telltale wavy pattern isn't just for show, either. It's the result of layering high-carbon steel over lower-carbon steel as much as 200 times. The result is a blade with a hardness rating of 55 HRC, suitable for display in any serious chef's kitchen.

You can now get the full set of three for more than 20% off the retail cost - just in time for Thanksgiving.
