  1. Hello, First of all I will introduce myself: In short, My name is Eric and I hail from The Green Mountain State. I use coal for fuel, arm-power for air and hammer, and I do all my forging outside under a little shed roof (which can be brutal in the winter ((despite the lack-there-of this year)). I am almost entirely self taught from books, this forum, and a whole lot of trial and error. On the note of "this forum", I have a whole lot of thanks to give out. When I started experimenting with pattern-welding I utilized these pages as my primary and frequent resource along with a few books that are amazing in their own right. The wealth of knowledge, passion, and generosity given for free by the members of this forum astounds me- there really isn't anything else quite like it. The inspiration I find here seems endless. So, thank you to those that make it possible and contribute. When I am not working on other metalworking commissions I practice bladesmithing, making hand tools for woodworking, and sculpture. Almost exactly one year ago I became obsessed with pattern-welded steel. I can't quite explain it, but I love the process- magic to say the least. Each piece seems to teach me more than last. Anyway, enough of that... here are some photos of recent work and a little info about them. I have a lot of process shots from the pattern welded blade if there is interest, but I won't post any here. I hope to continue to post and not just lurk as the questions never cease to emerge for me. Pattern Welded Blade: Total Length: 8.25" Blade Length: 4" Blade Material: 21 layers 1084 + recycled bandsaw blade steel Handle Material: Rosewood Copper Fitting & Brass Pin Pattern Welded Drawknife: Blade Length: 6" Blade Material: 252 layers composite recycled metal file and bandsaw blade steel. Handle Material: Walnut Steel Pins Pattern Welded Small Kitchen Blade: I had a lot of trouble with this, especially because the smallest nick to the Manzanita bark and it was gone forever. That also meant no shaping the sides of the wood. Also the etch came out super weird- I tried to fix it, made it worse, and gave up. More of an experimental piece I guess. Blade Length: 4.5" Blade Material: 252 layers recycled jackhammer bit and bandsaw blade steel. Handle Material: Manzanita Brass Pins Pattern Welded Small Blade: Blade Length: 3" Blade Material: 120 layer recycled metal file and bandsaw blade steel Handle Material: Curly Maple Steel Pins Thanks for taking the time to peak, Eric
