Damascus: Forging Techniques



Authors: Emilio Albericci, Flavio Galizzi & Luca Pizzi

In the panorama of traditional forging techniques, damascus has always represented a great challenge for those who tried to make it; so much so that throughout the centuries it has had alternating periods of decline and rebirth which were sometimes caused by these very difficulties in producing it. Damascus forging techniques, which are connected to a level of skill obtainable only through long and patient practice, have witnessed a rebirth of great quality in good part owing to bold experimentation. This is a practical manual with an introduction covering ancient damascus production techniques. In simple language and with over 350 full colour photos the book covers a great number of techniques for obtaining many different kinds of damascus. English/Italian
