  author={John D. Verhoeven and A. H. Pendray and W. E. Dauksch},
The authors published a paper in this journal in 19981 titled “The Key Role of Impurities in Ancient Damascus Steel Blades.” Because of the continued popularity of the on-line version of this paper,2 additional experiments were conducted on some three-century old Damascus bars. The results of those experiments are reported in this paper.

Evaluation of Mechanical Properties of Damascus Steel
This article deals with examination of the mechanical properties of Damascus steel. Damascus steel is steel used for blades or knives – similar to the past (Damascus steel was a type of steel used
Materials: Carbon nanotubes in an ancient Damascus sabre
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.
Mechanical Properties of Pattern Welded 1075-15N20 Steels*
Abstract Forged welded (damascus) steels are produced by traditional methods and mostly used in the design of decorative tools. These steels are well-known for their good mechanical properties. The
