Over and under shotgun
Purdey’s all-Damascus gun is a world-first. Available in side-by-side or over-and-under configuration, each is hand-crafted in Hammersmith, using damascene steel alloy forged in Sweden. Each piece has more than a hundred layers, which create the distinctive Damascus pattern. With exceptional purity and strength, it lends itself perfectly to the rigours of long service in the field.
There is no need to engrave a Damascus gun, as each has its own unique pattern, created when it is forged. We simply name and number them, with either conventional lettering or gold inlay.
