Damascus steel workshop
2 Days / $400 + Materials
Class has 2 spaces available
In this is a 2- day course you will be taken through the full process of fusing and folding your stack of metal, to creating and patterning a 100 layered billet...
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 a etching your billet in acid will help reveal the pattern.
From this class students can continue on to a knife making class, a blacksmithing class or receive private tutoring for a specific project.
Disclaimer: This is NOT a knife making class.
