The CASPIAN damascus is actually 2 different alloys of Stainless.
The billets are fabricated like true Damascus. Layered & machine forge welded Stainless. They are more like mass produced Damascus patterned Billets. Caspian does not make the Damascus billets. They do the machine & milling work on them though. Then the slides are fully machined from that rough bar stock. Beautiful slides.
VERY NICE SLIDES...& priced at $600.00+ just for the slide they are not real cheap.
