The Michigan Blacksmithing Club


The Michigan Bladesmithing Club collaborates to design and forge a blade to showcase in the TMS Bladesmithing Competition. This event is designed to promote engagement within the field of materials science and provide students with opportunities for industry jobs and advanced research. Members all play a part in fabricating the blade using traditional and modern bladesmithing methods, and perform material analysis using tools in the MSE Van Vlack Laboratory. In the off-season, members work on refining their own smithing skills to create blades for club use. No prior experience is necessary as members are all taught safety guidelines and basic hand forging skills at the beginning of each year. We encourage both engineering and non-engineering members to join and take a swing at some hot steel!
