Cast Damascus Steel, known as wootz, was popular in the East. It’s produced by melting pieces of iron and steel with charcoal in a reducing atmosphere (lacking oxygen). During the process, the metals absorb carbon from the charcoal and the resulting alloy is cooled at a very slow rate. Its origin can be traced back as far as 500 A.D. In India, it was called Telangana, Wootz or Ukku Steel. It then found its way to Damascus, Syria which was the center of trade in that region for War equipment such as Knives, Swords and Armor.
