An Introduction to Damascus Steel EDC Knives

A handy pocket knife is one of those things we EDCers love to collect. Some zero in on their favorite material, like titanium or wood handles, others might collect knives from their favorite designer. But for many enthusiasts, knives with a damascus blade and their distinct wave pattern are a prized part of their collection. While they're stunningly beautiful knives, they shouldn't be thought of as just display pieces — they're capable tools in their own right. In this guide, we'll explain what makes a Damascus knife so special and list some great options worth a spot in your collection.

BucknBear Damascus Multi-tool

If you want to carry a multi-tool but you're worried it'll weigh you down, a one-piece tool is the way to go. This handmade tool from Pennsylvania's own BucknBear packs 7 handy features into a single compact piece of metal. But it's not just any metal. Unlike most pocket tools, this one's forged from a modern damascus steel. The result is a versatile EDC with a one-of-a-kind finish, fortified with layers and layers of durability.

That's all thanks to the damascus — one of the toughest materials out there. It's made by repeatedly layering and heat treating steel to make it as hard as possible. BucknBear even uses their own in-house Rockwell hardness testing equipment to ensure each tool meets their durability standards.

On the tool itself, you'll find seven useful functions: there’s a multi size hex wrench, nail puller, hex, Phillips- and flat-head screwdrivers, bottle opener, and a key ring. It's sized to ride comfortably on your keychain setup, ready to go when you need it. Even with that kind of portability, it's comfortably large enough to use each of the tools with ease.

If you've been looking to get more utility out of your keychain without the bulk, consider this. You can grab this tool, along with other modern damascus gear exclusively from Huckberry at the link below.

Damastylus Inkless Pen

Damastylus Inkless Pen

When a premium, patterned steel that once formed ancient blades is reforged as a modern tool at an affordable price, then you know you’re on the edge of something special. The Damastylus aims to not only meld the function of a pen with the modern utility of a stylus, but also to innovate while remaining practical. It can draw on the popular Pilot Hi-Tec-C refills, and the unique metal alloy inkless refill that comes with the pen can write on most surfaces, in any temperature, and from any orientation. The Damastylus can be pre-ordered on Kickstarter in two material and size configurations.
