Wootz Militaria on collecting wootz blades…

The collecting of Wootz or Damascus steel has really grown over the past 8 to 10 years. collectors are further demanding finer or rare quality blades like the popular (adjusted) watered steel pattern called laddered wootz and it’s siblings! 

The thing that a lot of people don’t know is that this desired pattern was applied to the steel using mechanical methods, which we at Wootz Militaria have reproduced on occasion, I digress from the point of the post. A lot of collectors neglect blades in the condition shown in the video. 

The amazing thing is, over the years in our workshop we have restored many blades, probably well over 70, which were actually in worse condition than this sword and we revealed laddered or even more complex patterns. So the moral of the story is stop chasing perfect quality blades and try to train your eyes to detect patterns that are difficult for most humans eyes to see it could pay off!
