Dr. Jim Hrisoulas aka "Atar" is the author of several books, numerous magazine articles and research papers on the subject of bladesmithing and period metal working techniques used throughout history. His work has won awards at most of the internationally acclaimed knife and custom blade shows in the world.

Pattern welding; commonly known as "Damascus" is a process that involves heat, sweat and skill. There are numerous bladesmiths today that are unable to master its intricacies and subtleties. The pattern welding process involves an intimate knowledge of forge practice and a great deal of skill in order to get precise, beautiful and breathtaking patterns in the steel.

A properly forged pattern welded blade is a thing of beauty and deadly purpose. Legendary in its ability to cut and "stay together", these blades are the ultimate test of the bladesmith's art. Dr. Jim Hrisoulas makes some of the “finest pattern welded blades available today.”

Price $1,200
