Damascus Finish Info
Our acid wash Damascus gets its color from soaking the ring in an acid bath which adds a texture to the surface of the ring. As it is impossible to predict how the acid wash will react with each ring, the acid wash Damascus can vary in color from a light gray to a darker gray. Also, as the acid is only able to penetrate a small amount, the finish lightens over time to resemble a dull polish. The finish can be refurbished at any time to return it to a like-new state.
Our tumble finish Kuro Damascus gets its coloring from a heating process that adds texture to the metal which darkens it up. It is more consistent in color than the acid wash Damascus, but can still vary some due to the pattern lines. It is also more durable than our acid wash Damascus, but can still lighten some over time. The finish can be refurbished at any time to return it to a like-new state.
