August 28, 2017: Blacksmithing: Railroad Spike Novelty Knife

Make a knife shaped object out of a railroad spike.  We cannot allow you to set the edge of your project at the shop and we do not recommend it, but we can show you how to make a knife-shaped object out of a railroad spike! (We also cannot guarantee the carbon content of the spike therefore although we will show you how to harden and temper the steel, it may not be appropriate to then use it as a knife.)

This is a ONE DAY class.

NEW students: Your safe shop practices and fire management discussion will begin at 8.30am.

RETURNING Students: Please arrive by 9.00am.

Class includes safe shop practices, fire management, efficient hammer techniques and basic forging.  All safety equipment and materials provided.
