    Laminating with copper?

    Ok...I got this knife, it is a small deba(100mm) and it has a layer of copper between the jigane and the hagane. Has anyone ever seen this before?



    Just thought it was kinda cool, but didn't know that was possible.

    There is a maker on the west coast, that does a sanmai tool steel core, but has layers of copper in the damascus cladding. Quite striking to look at for sure.

    You see nickel layer often, to prevent carbon migration, but copper I have not seen before.

    Is it dangerous? I know copper pots need to be retinned once you can see the copper showing through on the inside.

    The copper only becomes a problem with acidic foods. That's why you re-tin those pots. it's the salts produced by the reaction of food acids and the copper that can become toxic, but you would need alot of it. I imagine with the deba, since it is dealing with fish you shouldn't have an issue.
