Damascus steel was a type of steel used for manufacturing sword blades in the Near East. These swords are characterized by distinctive patterns of banding and mottling reminiscent of flowing water. Such blades were reputed to be tough, resistant to shattering, and capable of being honed to a sharp, resilient edge.
The steel is named after Damascus, the capital city of Syria.
It may either refer to swords made or sold in Damascus directly, or it
may just refer to the aspect of the typical patterns.
The original method of producing Damascus steel is not known. Modern attempts to duplicate the metal have not been entirely successful due to differences in raw materials and
manufacturing techniques. Several individuals in modern times have claimed that they have rediscovered the methods by which the original Damascus steel was produced. The
reputation and history of Damascus steel has given rise to many
legends, such as the ability to cut through a rifle barrel or to cut a
hair falling across the blade. A research team in
Germany published a report in 2006 revealing nanowires and carbon nanotubes in a blade forged from Damascus steel.
Although many types of modern steel outperform ancient
Damascus alloys, chemical reactions in the production process made the blades extraordinary for their time, as Damascus steel was superplastic and very hard at the same time. Still holds true for Damascus steel today in the 21st century
