“Damascus blade can withstand the greatest pressure and will not chip even when met with iron armor as a foe.”

“A silk scarf will get cut into two pieces the moment it drops on a premium Damascus blade with the sheer weight of the scarf.”

“There is no blade as resilient as the Damascus Steel which whips back into shape like a willow branch when bent.”
