Updated on October 13, 2020 by Chris Bajda

Talk about a gift that is both functional and aesthetically designed! Giving him a modern Damascus knife is like letting him hit two birds with one stone. It’s one tool he can use in the kitchen and for his hunting adventures. Choose the type that is of high-quality. Consider its sharpness and its ability to maintain its edge well. Damascus knives are made with inner core of high-carbon specialty hard steel that is protected by a softer stainless steel. You can be sure that the blade will remain sharp because of the hardness of the inner core and will remain protected from chipping because of the softer steel. Forged together, it also produces that distinctive Damascus pattern that he will surely love.
