Damn a fine blade! SHARP SUPER


Damasteel pattern very special. Comes with wooden box, overall feel good


GOOD knife, very sharp


There is no doubt that the blade is beautiful, but the lid of the box came close to smacking my finger.Also, it would be even better if it comes with a scabbard. The box takes up a bit of space

  • How to sharpen an Okingjoy knife?
    To sharpen a knife, you will need a whetstone or knife sharpener.

    To use a sharpening stone, first soak the stone in water for about 10 minutes.

    Next, lay the knife flat on the stone and tilt the blade so that it forms a 10 to 15-degree angle with the stone.

    Using long, even strokes, move the blade across the stone in a back-and-forth motion, making sure to maintain the angle of the blade.

    After a few strokes, move the blade to the other side of the stone and repeat the process.

    You must sharpen the blade along its entire length and may need to repeat the process several times to achieve the desired sharpness level.
  • What is Damascus steel?
    The origin of the name "Damascus steel" is controversial: two Islamic scholars, Al-Kindi and Al-Biruni (c. 800-873 CE), both wrote about swords and sword steels based on the appearance, the geographical location of where they were produced or forged, or the name of the blacksmith. Both authors also mention the terms "damascene" or "Damascus" when describing the swords to some extent.

    Based on these references, there are three possible sources where the term "Damascus" in the context of steel comes from:

    Al-Kindi refers to swords forged in Damascus in Siberia as "Damascene", but it is important to note that these swords are not described as having a wavy appearance to the surface of the steel. Al-Biruni refers to a blacksmith of swords called Damascus who made crucible steel swords. In Arabic, the word "Damascus" means "watered", and Damascus blades are often described as having a water pattern on their surface.

    The most common explanation is that the steel is named after the capital of Syria, Damascus, the largest of the cities of the ancient Levant. The most common explanation is that the steel is named after the capital of Syria, Damascus, the largest city in the ancient Levant. These may be swords made or sold directly in Damascus, or simply the appearance of the typical patterns, in comparison with damask fabrics, which also bear the name Damascus.
