Oroshigane (Steel-making) Seminar

About the Course

This is a a two-day event demonstrating the processes used to create sword quality steel, also known as oroshigane. Using charcoal we will carburize electrolytic sponge iron (denkaitetsu) packed into a graphite crucible.

The result will then be prepared and sorted by carbon content.

Finally, we will build a billet ready to forge into a sword blade by forging and welding the raw pieces together.

All tools, fuel, and material included.


The price of the course is $275 and is limited to 6 students per session. A deposit of $75 is required for reservations.
