Blade Smithing: Make A Damascus Utility Knife

August 13 @ 12:00 PM - August 14 @ 4:00 PM

**THIS IS A 2-DAY, 2-PART CLASS. FIRST PART IS ON SATURDAY, NOON UNTIL YOUR KNIFE IS READY TO HEAT TREAT.SECOND PART IS ON SUNDAY, NOON UNTIL YOUR KNIFE IS COMPLETED.**

Learn the art of knife smithing as you create a beautiful damascus utility knife (or a small hunting knife).

These are a long time favorite of our instructor. A beautiful and compact knife based on a skinning knife that makes itself useful on a daily basis.

The wood grain pattern of damascus style laminate steel is highlighted by your choice of a variety of exotic hard woods for the handle.

On day 1 we will be shaping the knife in our workshop. Learn to profile your knife, apply a bevel and create a blade. Drill your tang, apply filework to the spine or add a hole for a lanyard. At the end of this class we will be ready to heat treat our blades.

On day 2 we will heat treat and quench your blades. Then we will learn how to attach a handle with brass pins. We will shape and finish the handles and finish and polish and sharpen the blades.

There will be a short intermission on both days, so you are welcome to bring food and drinks with you.

**Age range: 18 and older**
**Price: $195**
**Class size: 5**
