I pride myself in sourcing the best materials I can find that excel in functionality and aesthetics. Damasteel is a unique product that caters to all knifemakers through usability, range of patterns, custom billet sizes, high hardness and most of all for me stainless properties. Damasteel is a pleasure to use, I feel comfortable aligning myself with a strong brand that is innovative and progressive across the board. James Oatley, Oatleyknives
