In this class students will be exploring laminating wrought iron to high carbon steel and forging a highly functional chef knife out of that lamination. Covered will be material selection, working with wrought iron, forge welding theory and all aspects of finishing a knife. Students should expect to leave with a completed laminated chef knife ready to put to work in the kitchen. YOU MUST BE CONFIDENT WITH THE USE AND OPERATION OF A COAL FORGE. NESM’s beginner blacksmithing or equivalent is the prerequisite for this workshop. No knife making experience necessary.

Integral Chef with Nick Rossi. #integralchef #forged #buildituseitSome stills from Lee’s class. #leesauder #ironsmelting #somethingfromnothingSo not only did we make 4 blooms of iron, Lee guided us through remelting all the bits that fell off the blooms in forging and carburizing it in this smaller furnace. We were able to make some beautiful high carbon material! #homemadesteel #makesometoolsLee Sauder is amazing asset to our community and it was a pleasure to have him back for another smelting workshop. This is the climax, when a big beautiful bloom of Iron gets brought into the world! #bloomerysmelting #oretoiron #nothingtosomethingRED hammer faces, means one thing, it’s Smelting Week at NESM.  Busting up ore and making clay, the foundations of a successful smelt. Thank you Lee Sauder !!ya#newenglandschoolofmetalwork #acienttechnology #ironsmelting #gettingdirty
