This course is an introduction to bladesmithing designed for people with little to no experience. We will cover the fundamentals of forging including heating the steel, hammering technique, different types of hammers, etc. Students will learn the basics of heat treating and heat treat their own blades. Grinding and finishing the blades will also be covered in some depth. Students will be creating a 4"-6" full tang knife with a wooden slab handle. Closed toed leather shoes, saftey glasses, and long pants required. Please wear non-synthetic clothing. Safety toe shoes highly recommended. Ages 16 and up, a materials fee of $40 will be added to the tuition.
The Blacksmith’s Blade
MB8401 Oct 6 & 7, 2018 (10:00 am - 4:30 pm) Saturday/Sunday (Forge)
In this two day class each student will finish one or more self handled “Blacksmith’s” knives. The knives consist of a forged single edged blade and a skeleton handle that is forged out and bent around to form a useful grip. The knives will be made from a simple high carbon tool steel (1084) forged out, rough ground, heat treated and then finish ground and sharpened. A few hours of blacksmithing experience required. We will cover basic heat treating theory. Ages 18 and up (16 with parental approval), a materials fee of $35 will be added to the tuition.
