Who can make a Damascus knife
Creation of Damascus knife requires considerable experience in its unique technology and not everyone can make it.
Today Damascus knives supplied to the consumer market from several sources.
In this case, the process is set "on a grand scale." The knives which come off the assembly line are not much different from each other, although the quality is quite consistent due to manufacturing standards being in place. The price for them is average, but the audience is quite wide due to the mass production and almost universal availability.
Low level craftsmen.
They fill the market with low-quality Damascus knifes, which, of course, have their own buyer due to their low cost. However, such a knife will not serve you for a long time due to low quality materials and poor attention to details and quality from those who makes them.
High end masters of their craft.
One creation of such a professional will cost as much as several dozen knives made in an industrial environment. But isn't it worth it to be handcrafted from the highest quality steel with scrupulous attention to details? No decent collection can go without a knife from a master of such a level.
Other high-class workshops.
They have not yet managed to reach the top level of the masters, but among them there are many really talented craftsmen who can produce a real masterpiece. Moreover, the cost of such a knife will be a way lower comparing with former ones, while the quality is not compromised.
