  • Damascus (stainless) steel;
  • 14k rose (rosé) gold. 

Katana collection (ring, pendant, cufflinks and a tie pin) was crafted from a special material called Damascus steel. This is an exceptionally durable yet bendable metal that is created by the welding together of several different types of iron slices to form a billet and folding them a great number of times.
