Saturday 9 am-5 pm (with a lunch break) and Sunday 9 am-noon

On day one we dive into the forging of your blade. The goal of this class is to learn basic hammering techniques while forging a 3.5"-4" blade. Once your knife has been shaped out, we will go through the heat treating process to ensure it will hold an edge.

I will sharpen your knives before the second day, and we will spend Sunday morning wrapping the handles with a paracord wrap and creating a custom Kydex sheath for your knife.

All safety gear is provided. No experience is required.
