This is a 1 day class, with classes available on Sundays. Students will learn to forge a single blade during this class, a blacksmith or Viking style knife and learn to make a leather sheath custom for their knife. Students will learn to forge by hand, fire management, basic heat treating proceduces and blade forming techniques including grinding and filing. After forging and performing heat treatment, students will learn to make a basic template of their knives and use that template to create a custom leather sheath from veg tanned leather. While there is no set age requirements, we recommend the classes for ages 16 and over (email us regarding younger students, we just want to make sure it's worth our time and your money) and is limited to 3 students per class and scheduling is done on a first come, first serve basis. All materials, including steel, abrassives, leather and fuels needed to complete knives will be provided along with needed safety gear. We will be using a combination of coal and gas forges during classes. Belt grinders, air tools, abrasive saws and other power equipment may also be used by students. All classes are held in our indoor shop, rain, snow or shine! Attendees must wear jeans or work pants, closed toe shoes, preferably work boots and are encouraged to bring their own tools such as hammers or tongs if they have them but this is not required.
