In this comprehensive 3 day workshop students will be forging and finishing a handy fixed blade for “Every Day Carry” This knife will be more compact than the knife made in our hunting knife class. Each student can expect to make one full tang knife out of 1084 high carbon steel with an exotic wood or phenolic laminate handle. All aspects of knifemaking will be covered.

To put the “C” in EDC we will be making a molded thermoplastic sheath to go with it. This would be a great class for students who have never don’t this type of work before and want to make a tool they can use “Every Day”.

Some stills from Lee’s class. #leesauder #ironsmelting #somethingfromnothingSo not only did we make 4 blooms of iron, Lee guided us through remelting all the bits that fell off the blooms in forging and carburizing it in this smaller furnace. We were able to make some beautiful high carbon material! #homemadesteel #makesometoolsLee Sauder is amazing asset to our community and it was a pleasure to have him back for another smelting workshop. This is the climax, when a big beautiful bloom of Iron gets brought into the world! #bloomerysmelting #oretoiron #nothingtosomethingRED hammer faces, means one thing, it’s Smelting Week at NESM.  Busting up ore and making clay, the foundations of a successful smelt.
