Are you constantly inspired by popular bladesmithing TV shows, and want to improve and compare to the master bladesmiths present on them?

My name is Wes Sander, and like you, I too strive to better my bladesmithing craft and take it to the next level. 

Throughout my journey, I have learned several advanced techniques and discovered some powerful secrets that have helped me forge better knives. 

I will share them in this book.

If making the same knife bores you and you constantly search for adding a new twist to your creations...

If you want to deepen your knowledge to forge better blades, then this book is for you.

The 10 step method to forging a pattern welded Damascus sword

How to make mosaic Damascus patterns in your sword using the 'spiderwebs' technique

• How to forge, assemble, heat treat and polish a Japanese sword

Q: I sell the knives that I make. Can using these advanced techniques help me charge higher prices from my clients?

A: While I can't guarantee any monetary profit from this book, blades that have used techniques like the ones taught in this book have been known to be prized and will probably fetch higher prices than the average blade convention knife.

If you sell your creations, you will cherish the look on your client's face when your knife or sword meets their expectations!

Do you want to make a knife? It might sound strange to some people, and they might even wonder why they would want to go through such stress when one can easily get inexpensive yet functional knives in stores. I’ve had the opportunity to be asked a question like this. Some people need a knife that could be in their pocket that they could just use to clean their fingernails and maybe open envelopes; others might be about them getting a hunting knife which they can carry around to spilled-out game if possible so it might not be able owning an expensive knife. Well, a lot more people see a knife as a working tool which should be cared for and, of course, a tool one should have. These people need a knife that is long-lasting; they need a knife that has an edge and can be sharpened easily.

People in the last category can hardly find knives in the stores worthy for them, and the make of the knives they see might not be up to their taste. So, they feel their best bet is making their knives. Making their own is just the best way they can have the kind of quality knife they desired.

For those that want to learn how to make knives and swords, this book is for you. You will be shown how to make them and the stages that are involved and will help save you time from getting inferior knives. Even the advanced stage of the blade markers art such as special parts, fittings and patterns will be discussed.

The good thing is that the materials needed are easily accessible and they are inexpensive. Each knife that you make can be a beauty and a work of art. You will be wowed at the kind of knife you will be able to produce. With this book, they will look smooth and beautiful, having built each with your personal touch. Another good thing about making your blade is that you make the selection of the steel personally so that it will meet what you like so that after heat-treating the blade you can draw the blade, i.e., the temper to meet your specifications. This particular book will give you all the information that you will need to follow.

Chapter 1. Pattern Welding

Pattern welding can be seen as a unique way of joining a sword blade from iron and steel parts. Many types of iron and steel parts are welded in the fire in such a way that a satisfying pattern can be seen on one or both sides of the knife blade. This pattern comes to be because the two used kinds of iron and steel laid in between the surface shone the light differently, in a particular way after some special polishing and processing. You must use some unique shapes of the parts to be welded to have and create a specific pattern, and again different kinds of iron/steel must be used if one wants to see a visible pattern. This is to say that to succeed with this, structural and compositional piling must be done and should be done in such a way that it produces the kind of pattern one wants. So let look at the different words that relate to ways of making a sword.

Pattern welding: Fire welding makes use of different kinds of iron and steel in a way that a particular kind of pattern occurs on the finished blade. Putting together through fire welding some pieces of iron and steel in a more or less any kind of way will make a pattern on the finished blade. This pattern is often random and isn’t intentional. The finished sword is never a pattern welded sword but one done through piling. Patterns will appear if different steels have been used and it
