2021 New England Bladesmithing Symposium and Knife Show

  Hosted by New England School of Metalwork

JULY 9-11

Hello ALL loyal Hammer-In goers


The school has decided not to hold the event this year.

        Despite significant discussion and deliberation by the staff and members of the Board of Directors of the school, the consensus is that despite best safe efforts on everyone’s behalf there is still too much risk involved to hold our event, given the VERY close proximity and tight quarters of our facility.

We wish everyone a continued healthy and prosperous year and PLAN on being here in 2022.

Stay safe, Be strong, Forge On !!
