This blacksmithing class will show you how to forge pattern welded Damascus. This class is best for the experienced beginner. It is best if the student is familiar with managing a fire prior to this course. Any of our other blacksmithing courses would suffice as that pre-requisite. If you have a forge at home that you work on, that also counts as experience.
There is a lot of forge welding and power hammer work with this class. Each student will be able to take away all of the Damascus billets they make. From there, you could forge it into whatever shape you would like.
Fire management basics and shop safety will also be covered. Because of the noise of the power hammer, it is recommended that students bring over the ear hearing protection. We have in-ear plugs available.
We recommend that this class follow some sort of previous experience. It is possible for an ambitious new student to be successful in this class. We let students decide which class is right for them.
