Traditional Blacksmith Knife

Forge a handsome traditional blacksmith knife as you learn some more advanced forms of blacksmithing to create this object. We will learn how to work with knife steel, forge a blade edge using traditional blacksmithing techniques, and then heat treat our finished products. Some previous blacksmithing experience or a basic understanding of coal forging will help you succeed with this project. If you have done something similar to this class and would like to review your skills or try more complex projects, you are welcome to join! Materials fee includes steel, coal, and use of sanding belts and files.
