Various types of high carbon tool steel will be discussed. Students will learn about adapting found steel tools (such as hardware store center punches and nail sets). The instructor will demonstrate her approach to the processes of hardening and tempering steel tools (necessary for maintaining durable, sharp textures and edges on chasing tools).
