Unfortunately, like you can learn from the previous comments, this is not a wootz blade, but a pattern welded one.
And it is a very poor quality one. This type of blades are in most cases so soft that they cannot hold an edge and are easily bent.
I suggest you learn about the differences between WOOTZ (the oriental/antique/original "Damascus" steel) and PATTERN WELDED STEEL (what many call "Damascus" these days).
A good point to start would be Leo Figiel's book "On Damascus Steel."
