Blacksmithing – Forge Welded Tomahawk
January 28 @ 12:00 PM - January 29 @ 4:00 PM
In this intermediate class we will explore forge welding. This useful technique is the basis for all laminated steel projects including pattern welded "damascus" and Japanese style folded mono-steel.
We will use very high temperatures and pressure to fuse several pieces of steel into a tomahawk suitable for target throwing.
This is a two day class. Saturday 12-4 Sunday 12 - ?
Day one will be the heavy forging and welding day.
Day two will be for grinding, heat treating and polishing, and adding a handle.
