This piece have been produced from a piece of stainless damascus issued from powder compacting technology which led to an exceptional quality edgeand the esthetic of laminated steel.

An ancient Chinese proverb says that while the value of gold can be estimated, jade is priceless; this effectively reflects the importance given to jade in Chinese civilization. Oriental symbolism gives this as being a stone associated with the Emperor, epitomizing fortune and power. Jade was also considered as a sacred talisman that sovereigns used to communicate with the gods. A symbol of wisdom, harmony and peace, jade has long been appreciated for its beauty and its character as a traditional charm.   It is even said that Confucius, the famous Chinese philosopher, compared the smoothness of jade to goodwill, its hardness to an upright character, the diversity of its colors to an enquiring mind and its translucid nature to faithfulness. We use jade (of the nephritic type, still known as polar jade) sourced in the Polar mine in British Colombia in Canada. The crystals of this variety of jade are so closely intertwined that they give the jewel the necessary strength for use in making knives.
