Materials: Carbon nanotubes in an ancient Damascus sabre

TLDR
High-resolution transmission electron microscopy is used to examine a sample of Damascus sabre steel from the seventeenth century and finds that it contains carbon nanotubes as well as cementite nanowires, which may offer insight into the beautiful banding pattern of the ultrahigh-carbon steel created from an ancient recipe that was lost long ago.
