Wootz Makers and Production Methods
Tim Mitchell posted a topic in Bloomers and ButtonsHello All! It has been quite a few years since I have been involved in the Wootz community. Not due to lack of interest, but due to health and not having an area to work. From glancing around the pages, it seems that there has been quite a lot of experimentation from all over the world, with some very nice looking results. I am gearing up to do a lecture and demonstration over here in Australia for the guild on Wootz production, and was thinking I would like to take the pulse, so to speak, of Wootz making around the world. If you all don't mind could we: 1. Make a list Wootz makers in the US and internationally (will all wootz makers put their hands up please...LOL) (please link to a website if you have one) This is ONLY those who smelt their own wootz and make knives from them. 2. Make a simple survey of the current methods of smelting, ingredients, and forging of wootz (times and temperatures etc) Please try to keep things as simple and as short as possible. Also please try to not post a name or method that has already been listed. I hope this will be of help to the whole wootz making community and is something that it would be good to regularly update. Happy forging, Tim.
