The Damscus is made with 1095 and 15n20. The billet is forged to the right width and thickness, and the tang is drawn out and shaped. After annealing, the razor blank is profiled and soaked in vinegar over night so the scale can be wire brushed easily. The tang and bevel is rough ground and then heat treated. After heat treat the blade is thinned, refined and polished. The blade is etched to reveal the pattern. The case is made by splitting a single piece of ebony to make a matching set of scales. the pieces are then thinned in the mill to make the gap for the blade, and leave a wedge which is tapered at the end. They are then hand sanded and buffed. Titanium washers are made by hand, punched out of a sheet and turned down to size to stop the pin splitting the scales. A nickel silver pin is peened at both ends to hold the scales on. The scales and the pin are then polished and oiled before the blade is sharpened honed and stropped ready for shaving.
