Damascus steel was the forged steel of the blades of swords smithed in the Near East from ingots of Wootz steel either imported from Southern India or made in production centres in Sri Lanka, or Khorasan, Iran. These swords are characterized by distinctive patterns of banding and mottling reminiscent of flowing water, sometimes in a “ladder” or “rose” pattern. Such blades were reputed to be tough, resistant to shattering, and capable of being honed to a sharp, resilient edge.
Wootz (Indian), Pulad (Persian), Fuladh (Arabic), Bulat (Russian) and Bintie (Chinese) are all names for historical ultra-high carbon crucible steel typified by carbide segregation. “Wootz” is an erroneous transliteration of “utsa” or “fountain” in Sanskrit, however since 1794 it has been the primary word used to refer to historical hypereutectoid crucible steel.
The origin of the name “Damascus Steel” is contentious: the Islamic scholars al-Kindi (full name Abu Ya’qub ibn Ishaq al-Kindi, circa 800 CE – 873 CE) and al-Biruni (full name Abu al-Rayhan Muhammad ibn Ahmad al-Biruni, circa 973 CE – 1048 CE) both wrote about swords and steel made for swords, based on their surface appearance, geographical location of production or forging, or the name of the smith, and each mentions “damascene” or “damascus” swords to some extent.
Drawing from al-Kindi and al-Biruni, there are three potential sources for the term “Damascus” in the context of steel:
The word “damas” is the root word for “watered” in Arabic  with “water” being “ma” in Arabic and Damascus blades are often described as exhibiting a water-pattern on their surface, and are often referred to as “watered steel” in multiple languages.
Al-Kindi called swords produced and forged in Damascus as Damascene but it is worth noting that these swords were not described as having a pattern in the steel.
Al-Biruni mentions a sword-smith called Damasqui who made swords of crucible steel.[
