Damascus Sword is any sword created with Damascus Steel, a high-grade steel made from Indian wootz steel according to a method which has been lost to history. Their surfaces can show colorful swirling patterns. Like Japanese folded steel, Damascus Steel is the subject of many fanciful exaggerations of quality, with swords said to be able to cut cleanly through falling silk and slash boulders in two.
Game specific information
The Damascus Sword in Castlevania: Symphony of the Night appears as a double sided straight and purplish Long Sword. It is the second sword you can afford to purchase at the Master Librarian's shop and is about three times as costly as a Saber, but a less than half as costly as one of the elemental "brand" swords (such as the Firebrand). It is a basic sword slightly stronger than the Bekatowa (which is also a Long Sword) and slightly weaker than a Bastard Sword. The only other way to acquire this weapon is to take one from a Corner Guard in the Royal Chapel. It is the most powerful basic sword you can find (other than some dropped swords) without defeating Shaft's hold on Richter and venturing into the Reverse Castle.
The Damascus Sword in Castlevania: Curse of Darkness evolves from a line of an ornate severely curved sword, the Kris Naga and its predecessor, the Ada. This sword loses much of its curvature though and contains a dragon-shaped hilt. To make one, just add a Damascus Steel to your Kris Naga.
This sword forms the center blade of the 7 Bladed Sword, from which six Short Swords will protrude when combined with a Beelzebub's Seal and a Dark Crystal. You will need to add another Damascus Sword to your 7 Bladed Sword along with several other swords to create the legendary Laser Blade.
To create a Damascus Sword from scratch, you will need the following materials:
- 4 Bronzes
- 2 Wild Memories
- 1 Ceremonial Tool
- 1 Ancient Memory
- 1 Dragon Scale
- 1 Ether
- 1 Damascus Steel
The selling price is $750, which is just over the combined selling price of its component materials of $630.
The Damascus Sword makes its third appearance in Castlevania: Portrait of Ruin. It is the strongest horizontal swinging sword in the game. Throughout the entirety of the Nest of Evil, there are a couple Alastors, who are swords held by spiritual beings, much like Symphony of the Night's Hunting Girl and Azaghal enemies. Alastors, upon being killed, have a chance to drop this sword for use by Jonathan Morris.
