Blade: Hawes hand forged Damascus combines 180 layers of 1095 and 15n20 high carbon steels creating a unique, Modified Ladder pattern. With a generous nail nick the Whittler-style Wharncliffe blade is opened with ease and comes with a razor sharp convex grind. The straight edge and fine point are perfect for small wood working projects while the file work along the spine adds a custom feel. The blade opens with a pronounced half stop with strong Damascus back spring construction.

Handle: Hand forged Damascus steel bolsters are flush fit to the strikingly figured Desert Ironwood covers all supported by thick stainless liners. A full length Damascus back spring with custom file work rounds out the stylish swayback perfectly complementing the blade.

Hawes Ladder Damascus: A high quality, carbon steel Damascus, Chuck Hawes's custom Damascus is a folded, pattern welded steel made from simple 1095 high carbon steel and 15n20 band saw blade material. The steels are forge welded, folded and acid etched to achieve a unique layered pattern. Cutting performance will be similar to the carbon steels mentioned above. Care is required to prevent corrosion.
