Named after the Persian Immortals, a group of elite heavy infantrymen comprised of 10,000 soldiers. The Immortals got their name from the custom that the unit always stayed at the strength of exactly 10,000 men. If one of the Immortals were killed or seriously wounded, he was immediately replaced, maintaining the constant strength.
The Immortals played many important roles in numerous battles. They were known for their exceptional fighting skills and the use of bow and arrow, spears, and swords and daggers. Our Damascus steel drop point would be the perfect close quarters fighting knife with its upturned tip. Perfect for a low, upwards thrust. We designed this knife with Persian styling in mind and added a white Micarta handle to go along with the ornate robes of the Immortals.
Made of 1095 and 15n20 steels, the high carbon content of 1095 gives this knife an extremely sharp and durable edge and makes it the ideal choice for hunting.

About Forseti Steel:
The secret to forging authentic Damascus steel knives has long been lost, but Forseti Steel stays as true to the tradition as they can by commissioning smiths with Damascus ancestry to hand-make all of their blades. The artists behind the enamoring water-like patterns of folded and pounded steel have all learned their skills and techniques from the generations that worked the metals before them.
In addition to paying tribute to the Damascus practice in technique and appearance, Forseti Steel shows its respect for history's heroes, legends, and characters with their knives' names. The 9", walnut-handled Sentinel, for example, honors the Sentinels who stand guard at the Tomb of the Unknowns in Arlington.
