width=155    OLAMIC CUTLERY

   Olamic Cutlery is a relatively new company based in California.  They employ six Craftsman in Central Russia who hand forge and shape the unique Damascus blades.



Damascus steel and its characteristics have been a mystery in modern metallurgy, until John D. Verhoeven, Emeritus Professor in Materials Science and Engineering conducted a study along with master bladesmith Alfred H. Pendray. They set out to find out exactly what made Damascus steel so legendary. The secret turned out to be the combination of banded iron carbide particles and softer steel. Such molecular composition gave Damascus steel a hard cutting edge along with a rugged flexibility. But what specifically made it so? Research showed that the steel mix is crucial and must contain one of two (or both) secret ingredients: Vanadium and Molybdenum. Small traces of these elements added to high-carbon steel produced impeccable carbide bonds and thus unlocked the reason why Damascus is king of steel.

“For our Olamic Cutlery Damascus we use four types of Russian Steel, this creates a balanced mix of High-Carbon and Nickel steels.  The goal in our Damascus is Edge Retention and real world hunting knife performance.  We are able to achieve this using lessons learned from History and those uncovered by Mr. Verhhoeven. The Chemical composition of our Damascus features both Vanadium and Molybdenum, making for a superior and historically accurate steel. After Acid Etching, a beautiful damascene pattern is uncovered to add that final touch to every Olamic Cutlery hunting knife.  

Damascus is an ancient art and we aim to keep it alive for generations forrth. The word “Olamic” literally means “Lasting through Eternity” and that is exactly what we’ve set out to do.”

 Direct from the Maker from the Blade Show 2012  

   This unique Fighter has several versatile features, definitely one of the best Combat / Fighting Designs from Olamic so far – this is the Compat Voykar

  The Triple Color Camo G-10 handle has been extremely well designed, dramatic contours on the handle insure the knife will stay securely in your hand!  The Thumb Ridges are comfortable and there are Hand Applied Scalloped Traction grooves on the rear.  

I just had to show a Pic of the Amazing Grind on this Blade, note where the Alternating Penetrator Tip and Band Breaker meet on the thick spine. 

The Razor Sharp blade has a slight Recurve to increase the Cutting Edged and the blade is slightly less than than 3/16″ thick and it has a Deep Etch to bring out the beautiful Lunar Clouds Mosaic Damascus Pattern.  

The Leather Sheath has a Dangler Belt Loop already attached. This loop may be removed for direct Belt Wear.     

  This knife has a unique Serial # of 0620 ~ a packet of information as well as a Certificate of Authenticity is included with this knife.
