Our Damascus knives are made primarily out of 1084 and 15n20 High Carbon spring Steel. I like to keep the layer count between 250-300 layers although I'll do fewer layers on occasion. They are hardened typically to 57 - 59 degrees on the C scale. I prefer natural materials over synthetic materials for handles. I do make my own mosaic pins, generally based on patterns I have seen.
