What's the KNIVES ETCETERA™ Damascus Chef Knife difference?
Affordability is one thing, but what else makes a Damascus blade so special? Do you even need one in your kitchen? Well, here are a few things for you to think about:
We're not saying you should throw out your full cutlery of blades, but we are saying that our Damascus blade is likely to render them unnecessary. It's hard to dispute the effectiveness of Damascus steel knives.
A blade may seem like a simple tool, but you'd be surprised at the difficulty that comes with using some kitchen knives, especially when they're quite sharp. Our quality knives don't fall under that category, as they're just as beginner-friendly as they are conducive to expert use. The professional design makes chopping, slicing, and other cutting methods much simpler to achieve.
Razor-sharp Damascus knives such as these often command a high price. The said price for such products often rivals a whole cutlery set, but we believe that quality blades can be much more on the affordable side. If we haven't hammered that point home yet, have a look around our shop. Even if you were to check for Damascus knives on competing sites, you'd be hard-pressed to find similar quality Damascus steel knives for the same kind of price that we're offering here.
The Damascus steel design.
When you think of an elite kitchen knife, what comes to mind? Maybe you start thinking about the material, how long the knife is, and even its sharpness. All these factors contribute to either the durability, the cut, or both. Damascus steel knives have been making the rounds for a long time. Here are a few reasons why you should think about picking one up from us.
A few reasons to buy.
Damascus Steel Core
with 67 Layers.
Note that not every Damascus steel knife has the same composition of layers. The modern style highlighted here boasts 67 layers of Damascus steel. So, you can imagine that your purchase is going to be staying with you for some time. These layers are used to wrap the center, which is akin to a VG-10 Japanese steel core.
These material choices are all rolled into Damascus knives of varying lengths but all with ultra versatile designs. The Japanese inspired steel-like core also has a high carbon design, which makes for an incredibly sharp blade, guaranteeing more precise cuts throughout.
A full-tang design with the blade running throughout the length of the handle offers a better grip and greater durability. Our Damascus steel knives have a beautiful design that uses a single piece of steel running from the tip to the butt.
Additionally, the handle is made of a sturdy material that yields a non-stick grip. The material choices contribute to the weight as much as it does the finish. Feeling it is enough to indicate the quality of the product you're dealing with.
Contemporary Design with a Beautiful Pattern
A Damascus steel knife is one of the best knives you can get your hands on for the home kitchen. Our catalog guarantees you a wide variety of choices. From the sharp blade edge to the handle, the materials that make up all our knives create a look that brings flair to your kitchen. Imagine automatically looking like a professional by having the layered knife in your hand.
Even though the Damascus design takes advantage of the reliability of the traditional forging, it combines this with modern developments, which are visible in each layer, the sharp cutting edge that prevents food from sticking to the blade, the blade pattern, and even the polished finish.

30-day money-back guarantee.

So, even if you want to test a full-tang blade to see how the handle and the cut feel, you can go ahead and do so.
What Does Our Chef's Knife Design Process Look Like?
First, we only use the best materials in our design. Our choices from raw materials to the pattern are inspired by a Japanese design. The crafting process takes place in YangJiang. This Chinese city is known for its stellar design choices where pattern, sharpness, and overall craftsmanship are concerned. You can't argue with almost 1500 years of experience, can you?
A heat treatment, cold-rolling, and annealing process account for the layered pattern that our set of Damascus knives feature. A hand-polishing and finishing process then follows. In the end, we end up with sharp Damascus steel blades with a comfortable handle and a cutting edge that is the pinnacle of knife design.
Ironically, one of the reasons you can get such a Damascus knife from us at such an affordable price is the way we chose to handle our manufacturing process. It may be inspired by Japan, but by controlling the manufacturing process we are able to offer a much more affordable option to our valued customers.

Is Damascus Steel the Best for Knives?
While the material is not all it takes to make a good knife, Damascus steel is a reflection of the best. This is especially true when you consider the way the high carbon core resides within a layered design for improved functionality. Of course, we ensure that the aesthetic is complemented by the presence of the pattern.
Do you currently use a series of knives at home or in your restaurant for different tasks? If you want to imagine what Damascus steel can do for you, think of having a single knife that does the job several of the existing ones do. Now imagine that the Damascus knife is even better at doing the said job.
Are You Ready for Functional Excellence?
When it comes to cooking, you always want to ensure that you have the best elements to work with. Sometimes, that means ensuring you have got all the right ingredients to put a meal together. Other times, it means having the right knife at your side.
If you don't have a Damascus steel knife, you're missing out on the advantages that superior craftsmanship can bring to your kitchen needs.
