Students will design and fabricate a sheath from nickel silver.  Focus will be put towards creating a sheath for a pre-existing knife with a blade length of approximately 5 inches and a width of 1¼ inch. This will be accomplished through sessions on designing the exterior and interior of the sheath. Students will follow a multi-step construction process using a variety of soldering techniques for working with nickel silver. The expected outcome of this 3-day course is that students will leave with a finished product.
