The style of the blade is actually called Damascus and is a 67-layer design. The inner core (thickest layer) is Japanese VG10 and the outer layers (33-layer per side) are High Carbon Stainless Steel.
As our artisans grind each Damascus-clad blade from its thickest point at the spine to its razor-sharp cutting edge, they reveal the patterns. To bring them out even more, they acid-etch each blade. During acid etching, the layered metals react to the solution in different ways. The alternating layers of darker and brighter metal help reveal the flowing, rippled pattern.
Damascus looks beautiful, supports and protects the hard, dense cutting core, and adds stain resistance. Our Damascus construction provides a mix of properties including an extremely sharp edge and ease of sharpening. This clad construction is similar to how samurai swords are traditionally made. Your Zelite Infinity VG10 knives comes with the contemporary Tsunami Rose (flowing water) Pattern design.
