In this is a two 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 too thin plate ready to begin forging the knife profile. At this point 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.

Please note: This is not a knife making class. If you would like to make a knife from your Damascus billet following this weekend please book into a knife making class as well.

There is a limit of only four places per course.
