Damasteel’s stainless Damascus patterned steel, Damacore® DC18N is a powder metallurgy-based steel with three different alloys.
The center, the core consists of N11X™, a high nitrogen steel with distinctive properties combining outstanding corrosion resistance with edge sharpness, wear resistance, strength and ductility.
The Damascus patterned outer layers consists of RWL34™ and PMC27™. They are both variants of martensitic stainless steel with a minimum of 13 percent chromium content. They have been proven very suitable as a knife material, for long cherished in Damasteel DS93X™ martensitic Damascus patterned steel.
