Steel is one of the metals that has many types, both in
quality and in the way of production. Since it is alloyed with other elements, steel
has many different qualities and uses. One of the most widely used steel types
in history is damascus steel.
"Damascus" is actually the name given to a
production method. In the Damascus method, two steel plates are welded
together. A two-layer steel plate is formed. This plate is heat treated and
forged. It is then folded again and beaten again by heating. This process
continues 4-5 times. During this process, water is also added to the steel.
Even if the steel was called Damascus, the steel would not have been produced
in Damascus, the capital of Syria. This steel was mined from mines in India or
Sri Lanka. It was processed with special methods specific to those regions and
sent to the Damascus region in the form of ready-to-forge iron ingots.
Damascus steel appeared in the 6th century. It was one of
the most used types of steel until the 15th century. The reason why this steel
was used so much was that it was hard, flexible and durable. Due to these
properties of steel, it was common to use it in sword production at that time.
Swords had to be both durable and tough. In addition, the swords had to be
flexible so that they would not break immediately when subjected to hard blows.
Damascus steel was especially important for the sharp side of the sword. Because
the sharp side was both very thin and very durable, it was the warrior's
Damascus sword, as the name suggests, is a type of sword
produced from damascus steel. These swords are more flexible and durable than
many swords. Damascus swords have been used by many developed civilizations
throughout history,, although they have different designs.
The production and use of firearms was not very common
before the industrial revolution. Sword is
one of the most important war tools of armies. Battle tools apart from
swords were spears and arrows.
However, the vast majority of soldiers in armies used
swords. The sword was a kind of melee weapon and was used in close proximity to
the enemy. The warrior had to be very good at using a sword, and the sword he
used had to be more durable and useful than the enemy's because he was very
close to his enemy.
We have mentioned in the previous sections of our article
that swords were used especially before the industrial revolution. Damascus
swords were produced entirely by hand, like many other tools because the
production and use of machines was not very common in this period. No
fabrication process was used in the manufacture of the Damascus sword.
Therefore, producing a sword was not an easy job.
