For this year's Damast Annual Knife we work for the first time with Ricardo Romano Bernandes. Romano has been a knifemaker since 1990, and his craft is part of a tradition of knife making and sharpening that has been established for several generations. His design is based on the traditional Pen Knives and inspired us right away with its casual freshness.
For the modern interpretation of a traditional knife form, the powder-metallurgical damascus of the Swedish company Damasteel® seemed to us to be an appropriate blade material. The production of Damasteel® requires - even if the most modern technical means are used - just as much skill and experience as the hand-forging of steel. The purity and properties of Damasteel steel can be optimized to the extreme with complex combined processes. The self-supporting construction of laminated blue and gray G10 contrasts beautifully with the chosen "Odin Eye" pattern of Damasteel®. The simple yet all-time functional slip joint is a mandatory part of this type of knife. The size, weight, indestructible G10 scales and stainless Damasteel® make this collector's knife an excellent EDC at the same time.
