This class will cover:

After an introduction to metallurgy and the theory of pattern making, you will begin forge welding a 20 layered billet of 1070 and 15N20 steel using the power hammer. Once fused into a single block and drawn out it will be cut into 5 pieces, re-stacked, welded and then drawn out again to produce 100 layers.

The billet will then be surface textured to create your chosen pattern and then ground down to a thin plate. At this point etching your billet in acid will reveal the pattern.
