Class: How to Texture Titanium Knife Handles
Saturday, 2:00-3:00 PM
The course will cover the mechanics and techniques of using a 2x72 grinder to sculpt various patterns and textures on materials such as titanium, steel and other common alloys. Shane Magnussen of Scorpion 6 will outline grinder selection as well as appropriate machine setup and varieties of abrasive belts. The course also will cover the setup and techniques of sculpting freehand or by using a fixture, and the benefits/drawbacks of each of the applications. By the end of the class the student will have the information needed to safely use and select a grinder for sculpting, and recognize the mechanics of varying angles, wheel size and abrasive belt options, and how they influence the finished look of the materials.
