  • No they don't generally come with a Leatherman it's an add on. We don't sale any stock Leatherman products. Damascus Steel is almost always used for blades though lately a few companies are making some jewelry with it. It's used in high quality chef knives and swords as well as any personal knife. With Damascus you get a much sharper edge and that's the #1 reason its used. It's also much easier to sharpen from home. The name Damascus is more about how the steel is made. Ours are with 416 layers forged & folded several times to create the billet. There are only 2 companies in the US that make Damascus Steel but many DIY home blacksmith make their own Damascus. We get out billets from Alabama Damascus Steel co.

  • Our gold plated products are actually used all the time. Check out our reviews on Amazon, that's an understandable concern for many people! I understand what you're saying though and yes our plating is a luxury item not for everybody. They are still very usable, it's not our intention to have them placed on a shelf. We believe in this process enough to provide our own 5 year warranty. Due to our agreement with Leatherman we aren't allowed to sale their blades anymore : (

    We do electroplating and find it to be very durable and many people use the knives everyday! It will last many years and you can feel comfortable using it. All of our products come with a 5 year warranty. I am trying to add more detailed information to the steps. Is there anything in particular you wanted to know?
