Damascus Forging Class

 

 

Previous forging experience highly recommended

In this class, you will learn how best to prepare, construct and forge your very own pattern welded (damascus) steel billet. This will be done by using 2 different grades of carbon steel.  This will be yours to keep at the end of the course and can even be used in future classes.  Previous forge-work experience is highly recommended for this course.

You will create 6 billets of steel stacked with 2 steel types. Next you will fire-weld these together using the forge and anvil.  At that point, we will flatten them out and begin to combine these initial billets together to create more layers.

The 6 starting billets will eventually become 1 single billet.  this can be hammered, drilled and twisted to create a variety of patterns within your steel. The steel will be yours to take home at the end of the weekend.

16+ only.  Parent or guardian must be in attendance for any student under the age of 18.
