Learn to forge a knife in this two day, blacksmithing centered, knife making class! The first day, you will start on the forge and anvil where you’ll be shown how to shape a knife blank with the hammer and anvil. The second day will be spent shaping and honing the knife blank on knife grinders into a sharpened tool. You will be provided with oak handle scales and copper pins to complete your knife.
We have 3 different Blacksmith’s Knife courses: Hunter, Chopper, and Chef’s Knife.
The goal is for you to leave with a finished, working knife.
This is NOT an ABS class.
Class includes safe shop practices, fire management, efficient hammer techniques and basic forging. All safety equipment and materials provided.
8am – 5pm both days
Tuition: $349 for the 2-day course
