The LEVINCHY Damascus Steak Knife is a single-piece high-quality knife produced from Damascus stainless steel that has been expertly forged. Damascus steel is a highly superior form of steel that requires considerable effort to produce. The knife's blade is composed of many layers of steel that are folded numerous times during production. This results in the fine grain on the blade, which is a telltale sign of quality. The forged steak knife comes in a nice box that is great for presenting. Pakkawood was used to make the handle. The blade is 4.5 inches long.
