Laminated steel--also known as Damascus steel--is created by combining strips of steel and iron through hammer-welding, repeated heating, and forging. The process creates distinctive layered patterns that are intrinsic to the steel. Join local blacksmiths to create two 3lb "billets" of laminated steel that you will then use to create a handled herb chopper and a wearable item of your choice (such as a cuff bracelet, pendant, or belt buckle).
