As the war erupted in the Middle East during the latter part of the 20th century, the industry of knife-making had a downfall. It is an unfortunate event not just for those living in the Middle East but for those who manufacture Damascus steel knives and the like and other products which were the best knives in the world.
Damascus steel knives originated in that region dating centuries back. It can be considered as an ancient craft. As the war went on, people lost not just loved ones but also their way of living. The traditional craft of making Damascus steel knives has been passed on from one generation to another. With the number of people killed during the war, how many makers of Damascus steel knives have lost their lives? No statistic will show the answer but the market would be the one which would feel their loss. The supply of Damascus steel knives available in the market went straight down to almost nothing. Some people even consider Damascus steel knives as a collector’s item already since there is not much being made like those authentic ones coming from the Middle East.
Damascus steel knives have been a real treasure for some who were able to get their hands on authentic ones. Proud owners of real-life Damascus steel knives will have a special place where they can put this item. Also, these owners would have their item’s estimated market worth sky rocketing when the war started its course. One can even say that they are thankful the war occurred, though they should not really be thankful for it.
The art of knife making especially of those Damascus steel knives did not end when the war started. Just like any person, one should make a stand and continue this art for the next generations to appreciate. There are several reasons why there has been numerous wars that erupted during this generation and a number of industries have suffered especially those who are manufacturing Damascus steel knives and other products that war-inflicted countries have to offer.
In the end, everybody would become the victims of war whether directly or indirectly. Consumers would have an indirect relation to this unfortunate event and would only be forced to purchase a necessity for a higher cost like fuel. It would be nice if one can sleep at night knowing that when they wake up, the sun will be brightly shining and things will present better opportunities. Children should be playing and not learning how to shoot. There has been so many changes after each and every war, but would it be too much to ask for peace in this planet for the future of the children?
