This is an introduction course that will teach students how to make a knife in two days and how to use salvaged materials from leaf springs, roller bearings and other qualified steel pieces to make blades.

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.

This course will focus on introducing the basics of blacksmithing first – students will learn to blacksmith their own knife from scratch, giving students a great foundation and knowledge of working with scrap metals.

Knives will be forge-finished and students will go home with a paracord-handle, finished knife. Additionally you will receive a pair of safety glasses, ear  plugs, a file, and a file card to use for the class and take home.

Students will learn to heat, pound and shape spring steel into a blade.

Students will be introduced to metals, heating, forging, hammering techniques, straightening, grinding, shaping, knife and handle making.
