Bladesmithing in a day – Damascus Utility Mini-skinner

January 28 @ 11:00 AM - 5:30 PM

**This is a FULL DAY CLASS with an intermission.**

Learn the art of knife smithing as you create a beautiful damascus utility 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.

Learn to profile your knife, apply a bevel and create a blade. Apply intricate filework to the spine or add a hole for a lanyard. At the end of the first half of the day we will heat treat our blades, and acid etch them to bring out the patterns in the steel.

After the intermission 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 at mid-day, so you are welcome to bring food and drinks with you (fridge available).

Age range: 16 and older
Cost: $150
