The Damascus

Our first foray into the use of Artisan Damascus pistol back in 2013. Since that time we have developed specialized expertise working in this material. But this is the gun the started the journey.

To our knowledge the Cabot Damascus 1911 is the first traditional folded steel Damascus pistol ever produced.  Other pistols described as Damascus are formed from powdered Damascus, not artisan true folded steel Damascus.

Born from a 50 layer block of American artisan made stainless steel by master Damascus craftsman Chad Nichols, the Cabot Damascus 1911 represents a new achievement.  Extraordinary to machine and grind this will likely be the only 1911 we will produce from true traditional folded Damascus steel.

The grips for this pistol are also a work of art.  Commissioned from sculptor and artist Brian Challis, the grips on the Cabot Damascus 1911 are created from an ancient tooth of the woolly mammoth.  Other refined details include the Cabot Tri-Star trigger with a rounded front pad knurled on a rounded and radius pattern, yet another engineering feat.

The Cabot Damascus 1911 forms part of Cabot’s OAK (one-of-a-kind) Collection. Cabot’s OAK Collection firearms are investment grade pistols and pistol sets of unprecedented quality and rarity. Truly a masterpiece of hand-finished craftsmanship, the Cabot Damascus 1911 place in history has already been firmly established. What remains to be seen is whether or not its place in your history will be assured.
