About the Class:

This 2-day class is designed to serve as a basic, hands-on introduction to the craft of bladesmithing. Instruction will include information on tools and equipment, material selection, body mechanics, design considerations, forging techniques, basic heat treating principles and finishing methods. This will be a fairly active class, with strong emphasis on student participation, and will involve a healthy amount of heat, noise, sweat, and physical exertion. Each student will start with a 1/4″x3/4″x6″ segment of high carbon spring steel, and through forging, profiling, beveling, heat treating, and finishing, create their own personal hand-forged blade.
