An ancient craft in the present
I am passionate about finding and experiencing the impact of ancient crafts on our present. I have long been interested in the history of Damascus steel. For a long time, I was attracted by its beauty, but now I know that there is more to it than that. The historic Damascus purpose ceased in the 17th century. I am grateful to a man called Bréant, who worked in the early 1800s, for not giving up his research and thanks to him we did not have to forget the moire pattern.
It was this pattern that made me choose Damasteel® austenitic Damascus pattern steel for my pens. The pattern, formed by combining two types of powdered steel, has found a worthy place among Pendors® pens.
Damasteel® is hypoallergenic and has a high-quality corrosion resistance. It won’t rust, corrode, matte, stain or turn green, even with a lot of handwriting. If scratched or damaged, the “self-repairing” property of stainless-steel kicks in as a new layer of chromium oxide is formed.
It is a real honor to be able to make a pen like this. No two are ever alike, either in hue or pattern. It can be perfectly combined with silver or gold, since the shades of the metals enhance each other’s appearance.
In the making of Damasteel® steel pens, I can feel the blacksmiths at my side, who have worked the metals with incredible skill to create the moire designs. My pens keep the memory of their work alive.
