To hand craft your own knife is something special. Explore the use of fire and hammer to shape high carbon steel in this introduction to hand forging and finishing knives. Forge blades, refine blades by grinding and polishing, then heat treat, fit the handle and sharpen the blades. You will learn the basics of metallurgy and good knife design and construction, and the science and geometry of cutting edges. You will finish at least 1-2 blades during the class, and take away the skills to make many more.
