Damascus steel in the twenty-first century
Originally damascus steel was used because there weren't any modern alloys yet. Back then damast was a great solution to produce a great blade that was hard and sharp, and strong and flexible at the same time. Today damascus steel is mainly decorative, and functionally speaking not strictly necessary. Even though today there are still blades where a core of hard steel is laminated in between two layers of softer steel to make the core stronger. The two outer layers around this type of core are sometimes also made from damascus steel. The possibilities are basically endless. The only limitation here lies in the imagination of the blacksmith.
