          A journey into the world of the Bladesmith. This intense three day class will focus on the forging skills needed for bladesmithing using 1084 high carbon steel. Full tang blades with slab handle construction will be the primary project. A focus on better hand forging skills, grinding, and proper heat treatment will be the core of the class. Basic handle construction, materials, fitting, filing and finish will be covered, it may be possible for students to leave with one completely finished blade based on skill level. A beginners blacksmithing workshop is recommended but not necessary.
