ABOUT THE MAKER
Olamic Cutlery
Olamic Cutlery is a young brand of semi-custom High Carbon Damascus hunting knives. Eugene Solomonik founded the company along with his father on 10/10/10. The word "Olamic" literally means "something lasting through eternity" and we aim to create exactly that. We combine 2,300 years of Damascus steel forging history with modern steels and handle materials. Metallurgy professor John D. Verhoeven along with Master Bladesmith Alfred Pendray set out to discover what made Damascus steel the steel that built empires. On a molecular level they narrowed it down to Vanadium, a key impurity that creates impeccable carbide bonding and ensures strength and flexibility. Their findings were published in this paper, titled Mystery of Damascus Blades (Scientific American, 01/2011). Our Damascus steel is High Carbon and includes Vanadium for maximum edge-retention and real-world hunting performance. Rockwell hardness ranges 57-59 HRC and most patterns are twist-based. The knives are made in Russia, where I grew up. We have a small 6-man shop in Russia's metalworking capital. Each knife is designed by us and hand-crafted with meticulous attention to detail. We have a deeply rooted respect for the art and use stone wheels to grind the blades and handles. The knives carry within themselves over two thousand years of Damascus steel forging history, as well as part of my own history. Russia's northern region Karelia is where I spent many summers, fishing and surviving. Our Birch trees come from there and are some of the finest in the world. Moreover, Karelia is home to great Vanadium-rich steels. Each knife is stamped with a unique serial ID and comes with a certificate of authenticity and a basic belt-loop leather sheath. The warranty, of course, is lifetime and extends to anyone in possession of the knife.
