Atelier185 is the brand under wich Clem Vanhee creates unique handforged damascussteel knives. After finishing his highschool studies in mechanical engineering Clem started a course in blacksmithing at the CVO Ghent. Under the skilled supervision of Philip Vercammen I learned how to forge, wield and weld hot steel. Turning the blacksmithing craft more and more into the almost lost art of damascussteel forging and knifemaking. Now I forge my own patternwelded damascus steel to the highest possible quality.
As a mechanical engineer, steel quality, material properties and hardness are very important for me. Therefore i had my handforged damascussteel investigated and approved by Prof. Coudeville, materialsspecialist of the KU Leuven department Bruges.
