Knife class 11/21

This weekend I had three guys in the class, Dave and Mike from New Jersey, and Chris from Philadelphia. What a fun group! Everyone did well, we all got along great, had lots of laughs and even an end of the day beer or two. Next class is December 5 and there might be an opening if you’d like to attend!

This weekends class

Here’s some pictures from the latest bladesmithing class at Underhill Forge. This class was a little different than the normal classes, both students had previous knife making experience, Mike’s a former student and Larry is a stock removal knife maker, so we did an advanced project. Here’s some pictures of from the class!

I only do this class a handful of times each year and it’s always a lot of fun. Had some great guys join me this past Sunday, Aaron H., John C. and Eli C. Class went great, the guys were awesome students! It’s been since July since I’ve taught, so I’m sure between that and my daughter deciding daddy doesn’t need that much sleep, I’m sure the guys were taking it easy on me. Thanks again to everyone for coming out, here’s some pictures from the class!
