so there's this class/workshop...
Damascus Steel and Mokume
Construct beautifully patterned metals from iron and steel, silver and copper and other non-ferrous metals. These patterned metals can add drama and beauty to a variety of metal working projects, including jewelry applications and cutlery. Learn various techniques for producing interesting patterned married metals in the traditions of the Japanese, the Turkish and others.
It starts on my birthday. That's a sign that I should do it, right?
Daymn I miss blacksmithing.
I just might if I'm not careful...
I think that's a sign alright.
$300 isn't too bad, for a metalsmithing class, is it?
i think it's pretty darn cheap.
It's april 7th through may 5th, so it's only 5 nights, but they are 3.5hr sessions. (6:30-10pm)
ooooo I'm so tempted.
Dont you deserve a reqard for getting a new job?

What kind of smithing did you do before? From what I understand, the prof prefers having folks who have some experience with blades before they enroll in the damascus course...
By all means, though, drop them a line.
Hmm, no experience with blades, no. Just your basic clothes hooks, nails, etc.
I think i'll e-mail him though, and see what's up.

There's another bladesmithing class coming in the fall...
and I'll probably be in it.
Is there a fall catalogue up? I couldn't find it.
You have to make me weapons if you take it. :-)
Ooooh, my own custom knife shop.
I like where this is going. ;-)
Hey, if'n you got pretty good (or even decent) at it, you could pull in some good $$ doing custom knives and such. Even the cheap ones ain't so cheap.
They ain't so cheap because they're a bitch to make. =P
Well, long as you enjoy it.
That sounds awesome, go for it!
