-Etching with Ferric Chloride to reveal pattern.
-For an additional fee, student can upgrade to different Damascus patterns.
2 Day Course - Basic Damascus - Ladder, twist, random.
Student will create a alternating stack of 15n20 and 1084 layers, weld them together, add a handle, and use the hydraulic press and rolling mill to create a pattern welded billet. Different dies and grinds can be done to change the pattern, limited only to the time available in the course. Normally students have enough steel to make a few knives and sell some Damascus to supplement the cost of the class.
