This steel factory and workshop demonstrate some old but famous techniques of sword and knife making and gold plated steel jewellery. Good place to get a cultural insight.

Toledo was and is famous for its steel swords, knives, and inlaid jewelry. At the Damascene you get a brief tour of the way the swords and inlay is made and then you are taken to their sales shop. Lots of beautiful items to purchase.

Please, remove your opinion from my tripadvisor site, you are not talking about my bussiness. I am the owner of Damascene-damasquinado. It is a small shop in downtown Toledo and I do not work with swords. You must have visited some other store. Thank you.

The workmanship is superb and they are very creative. He was decorating a small bowl when we were there. Unfortunately it has become a tourist trap with very pushy sales personnel. I found earrings (which was what I was looking for) cheaper elsewhere.

I asked the lady for a pair of "good" scissors- not tourist ones. She gave me the same ones that I considered touristy. The were gold colored which started flaking off with use.

You actually get to see the craftsman working on small intricate pieces in the studio workshop! The gift shop has a wide variety of items available from the quite expensive hand-crafted pieces to others that are machine made and much more affordable.
