Wikipedia definition
2. DamasceningDamascening is the art of inlaying different metals into one another—typically, gold or silver into a darkly oxidized steel background—to produce intricate patterns similar to niello. The English term comes from a perceived resemblance to the rich tapestry patterns of damask silk. The technique has a long history in Japan, where it was used to decorate katana fittings, particularly tsuba.
