"That," said Dumbledore, "is no ordinary scar."
That famous line comes in the fourth book, when Harry is starting to realize the true importance of the distinctive lightning shaped scar on his forehead. He had always liked the scar but was only just becoming aware of the link it created between himself and Voldemort, the dark Wizard who had murdered Harry's parents.
Harry was just 15 months old when Voldemort broke into his family's home one night and murdered both of his parents. Voldemort then tried to murder Harry but because of his mother's sacrifice, the killing curse performed by Voldemort rebounded and Harry was untouched, except for a lightning shaped scar.
The scar served as a reminder to Harry of both his external and internal ordeals as he progressed through his years at Hogwarts, the school he attended. It also eventually became evident that the scar was actually a connection to Voldemort and, with training, Harry was able to use that connection to his advantage.

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.
