         This fast paced four day class will cover the manufacture of a 9 to 10 inch chopping knife. This knife would be ideal for heavy brush clearing, cutting competitions, camping, gardening or zombie invasions. These blades will be forged out of quality high carbon steel and a forge texture will be left on the flats of the knife for durability and rugged good looks. How to properly normalize, harden and temper these blades for optimum performance and “big knife” ergonomics and design will be the focus of this class. Handles will be made of textured leather and then wrapped in cord. Potential students should have some blacksmithing or bladesmithing experience. Depending on skill level, a student will leave this class with a properly heat treated, handled and razor sharp chopper ready to be put to work in the woods, the campsite or defending their family and friends from the undead. . A minimum of a beginners blacksmithing workshop is recommended.
