In this fast paced, 5 day class the student’s goal will be to complete a 6-8” Damascus bladed Chef Knife of hidden tang construction. Students will begin the first day with standard pattern welding protocol and will work to complete and pattern one billet of Damascus steel. The students will then forge a 6-8” bladed hunting knife out of that steel. Grinding and heat treating will be covered as well as how to fit a handle of either Micarta or exotic wood. The knives will be polished and etched to reveal the dramatic pattern of the pattern welded material.

Potential students should be confident in their forging ability and should have a general understanding of blacksmith shop practices. Students should be comfortable with the use of power tools like drill presses, hand grinders, belt sanders and hand tools. Forge welding experience is helpful but not necessary.
