Using hand and power tools you will be immersed in the limitless pattern potential that is modern Damascus Steel (Pattern-Welded steel). Students will make two patterns per day following traditional and modern techniques. Variations of each technique will be discussed so you see how subtle changes can effect the final patterns.
You will forge carbon steel from base patterns such as twist and ladder to more complex composite work.

Metallurgy, Heat Treating and Etching will also be covered.
