The core blade & double bevel cutting edge is made from the same pure stain resistant high carbon steel cobalt alloy as the standard DP 3-layer series, which is made with a core of VG-10 stainless steel sandwiched between a layer of softer stainless for ease of sharpening.
However, in the Damascus series, this is overlaid with 36 separate fine layers of high & low-carbon stainless giving the knife exceptional strength & flexibility. It is the all-around multi-tasking blade and great for so many jobs.
