Using hand and power tools you will be immersed in the limitless pattern potential that is modern Damascus Steel (Pattern-Welded steel).
Students will hammer weld a stack of steel into bar and work that bar into a simple knife.
You will see how subtle changes can effect the final pattern on the blade.
From there you will heat treat, grind and fit a handle to the blade.

Metallurgy, Heat Treating and Etching will also be covered.
