Product Description

No previous knowledge is required. With the help of examples and instructions, participants will be given a step-by-step introduction to the art and methods of Damascus forging, also known as pattern welding. And that is what the course is all about, using welding techniques and, layer by layer, creating different patterns, primarily on knife blades. On the course, you will learn to blend different steels: carbon steel, nickel steel, unalloyed steel and pure nickel. The pattern that forms is up to your own imagination. By the end of the course, it might even be a mosaic pattern. The course also examines the fundamentals of tempering, sharpening, polishing and etching.
