Damascus Knifemaking Course with Nick Anger (@angerknives) at the Center for Metal Arts
During this workshop, Nick will demonstrate and talk in detail about damascus pattern welded steel. He will forge one large “group billet” on Friday evening as a demonstration.
The “group billet” will be drawn out, divided into pieces, and each student will forge his or her own hidden tang, Japanese style chef’s knife. Various patterning techniques will be discussed and an emphasis will be placed on controlled hand forging.
