Damascus Steel (Damaszener Stahl) Manfred Sachse

S&H $5.00

Sachse is a master bladesmith/blacksmith in the highest sense. Not only can he make beautiful and varied styles of damascus steel; but he has meticulously researched the history of both the pattern styles and how they were made. In many cases he has remade the historical styles himself. The book is filled with rare and colorful pictures of damascus and wootz steel objects. This includes everything from what you would expect to find - knives; guns; and swords - to more unusual objects like armour and jewelry. The information in this book is helpful whether you are an expert or a novice.
