MB8201 Apr 7 & 8, 2018 (10am-4:30pm) Saturday /Sunday (Forge)

In this class students will learn to make “Damascus” (pattern welded steel). This beautiful and historic material can be used to make knives, tools or decorative objects. Starting with bars of two different kinds of high carbon steel, students will forge weld them into billets, fold and draw out the steel – repeating this until the desired layer count is achieved. Basic patterning will be covered, including twists, ladder patterns etc. Each student can expect to leave the class with at least enough patterned steel to make two knives, and the knowledge to make more. The class will make use of our newly installed hydraulic press. Ages 16 and older. A materials fee of $60.00 will be added to the tuition.
