The Cabot Gun’s Damascus Ladder Deluxe is the perfect intertwining of grit and sensuality – inspiring widened eyes, a quickened heart and immediate carnal reaction of raw desire. It’s confidence embodied in art, a culmination of collaborative effort between tradition and the cutting-edge.

Unique to the supremely elegant Damascus steel slide is a sculptural texture which is as much an aesthetic addition as it is a deliberate consideration of combining form and function. Cabot has developed a super-etching technique, which when applied to the Damascus Ladder Deluxe’s slide turns the entire top-half of the pistol into a tactile surface.

A sign of wealth since biblical times, Damascus steel was used to create the weapons of Kings and Chieftains. Valued for it’s beauty and strength, Damascus steel was not only an indication of power by it’s holder but was also considered to contain mythical properties. It is with this inspiration we have crafted this 1911.

The grips for the special edition Cabot 1911 offering of this model are also a work of art. Pattern welded Damascus, commissioned from Master Blacksmith Jason Morrissey and crafted in-house each set of grips contains unique Damascus Art.

Are the pics all reversed, or is this a left hand 1911?


How much is one of these fine looking pistols?


In ancient times, Damascus steel earned a reputation for strength, largely because in ancient times they didn’t have the capability of controlling steel alloy composition the way we do now. Today, “Damascus” steel is made by forge welding dissimilar alloys together, primarily for aesthetic reasons. I would MUCH rather have a gun made out of a single good high strength alloy with precisely controlled composition and modern fabrication and heat treatment rather than something pieced together out of many layers of different steel. This applies to Damascus pistols as much as it applies to the Damascus shotgun barrels of a… Read more »

Those are drop-dead beautiful.


What a beautiful gun.
