Generally damascus steels were rust blued because the steel was used in doublebarrel shotguns and rifles. The barrels were soft soldered together and the hot salts bluing would distroy the solder.

Please read the chapter on color case hardening in the book "Gun Craft by Vic Venters" also good reading is the "Gun by W.W. Greener"
