Manfred Sachse
Damascus steel (or “damask”) is associated with artistically forged Turkish sabers of the 18th century. While it has become an accepted generic term, the name still conjures up a feeling of mystery. Damascus Steel attempts to retell the complicated and multi-faceted history of the forging technology that created the flame-like motifs with gold and silver figures inlaid. Author Manfred Sachse’s years of forging activity and deep knowledge of Damascus steel are evidenced through diagrams and photographs that illustrate the beauty of the finished products, while illuminating the complex process.
