The Nero is another one of our new models, with less than 10 produced as of 04/10/2013. We have always had a Persian-style blade and this is its latest, and we think best, iteration. The knife is extremely safe and comfortable, offering an aggressive finger groove/guard. The handle is flared outward to fit your palm swell, and contoured to remove any hot spots. Currently the Nero is only being offered with synthetic materials.
Blade: 4.5” Persian
Overall Length: 9.5”
Olamic Cutlery Damascus is manufactured from mix of four types of Russian high carbon steels. This creates a balanced mix of high-carbon and nickel steels. The goal is edge-retention and real-world hunting performance. They were able to achieve this using lessons learned from history, and those uncovered by modern custom knife makers from around the world. The chemical composition of the Olamic Damascus features both Vanadium and Molybdenum, making it a superior type of steels which has a very hard cutting edge along with rugged flexibility. After acid etching, a beautiful damascene pattern is uncovered, adding that final touch to every Olamic Cutlery hunting knife. Damascus steel is an ancient art and Olamic Cutlery strives to keep this form of art alive for generations forth. The word “Olamic” literally means “lasting through eternity” and that is exactly what they are set out to do.
All Olamic knives come with a thick leather pressure sheath custom fitted to suit each knife.
Each knife is individually numbered and comes with a certificate of authenticity / passport.
