Event description

Description

This five day intensive course will teach you how to forge weld a damascus steel billet and then forge that into a knife blade. Once it's been sandied and filed to a finished shape you'lllearn how to heat treat the blade. The blades will then be polished and etched. After that you’ll make and fit a handle for your knife.

As can be seen on his website, www.jefhelmes.com Jeff’s extensive knowledge of bladesmithing consists also of inlay, carved bone and antler, leather work, chasing and repoussé, filigree and vacuum casting. Mid-week Jeff will spend an evening talking about these processes and showing images of commissions he has worked on over the past several years including his most recent work for the Royal Ontario Museum.
