ZLATOUST DAMASCUS STEEL
Traditional technology of blacksmith welding does not produce Damascus steels from high-alloyed steels with such an important consumer property as corrosion resistance.
Zlatoust specialists managed to solve this problem. In 2010, they launched the new weather-resistant Damascus brand Zladinox to the global market.
Steel was recognized by Russian and foreign manufacturers of knives at the exhibitions Klinok (Russia), Arsenal (Russia), IWA (International Exhibition IWA Outdoor Classics shows high-quality weapons from international suppliers of these products, Nuremberg, Germany), Macher Messe Solingen (Solingen , Germany), S.I.C.A.C. (Paris, France).
The main difference between Zladinox and Damasteel (Sweden) is the use of traditional rather than powder steels in the composition. Powder steels are more fragile.
* The use of steels with a carbon content of over 1.5% makes it possible to achieve high cutting properties of the composition.
* Hand forging of blanks gives the pattern a “lively” character and originality.
