Northwest Hammer In 2003 June 21-22: We have three themes this year. Metallurgy and heat treating (Devon Thomas and Bob Kramer), Easy to make folders (Ed schempp's "KINETIC PROGRESSIVE FOLDER" and Mat Disken), and of course Damascus (the rest of us).

If you're serious about folders, let me know and for an additional fee small fee, I'll get you set up to make a template here in the shop during the hammer in. (Limit 5 people). The cost for the two days is $150.00. My shop is only so big, so an early response will get you in.
