Two Day Intro to Knife making-$300

Over two saturdays, learn how to forge out, grind, and heat treat a small, every day carry knife. Pick from three designs and two sizes. Walk away with something you can be proud of, and a new skill set.  Classes run monthly, on the first and second Saturday of the month. 

Open to students 18+, must sign a liability waiver, and must comply with forge safety guidelines and wardrobe.

One Day Trinket Class-$175

Hooks, nails, hairpins, leaf key chains - all the small things that we all start off with as a beginner blacksmith. Start your training and start swinging a hammer with this one day class. Projects will be tailored to the students as we work, and everyone should leave with a handful of finished and semi finished pieces.

Open to students 18+, must sign a liability waiver, and must comply with forge safety guidelines and wardrobe.

Sheathmaking Class-$175

Offered in conjunction with Theo Rock Nazz, with floating days available, we'll teach you to make a simple leather sheath for a knife of your choice. Add $100 for a sword scabbard. Get a $25 discount on the class if you made the knife with us.

Open to students 18+, must sign a liability waiver, and must comply with forge safety guidelines and wardrobe.

What to wear and bring:

Only wear natural fiber clothing, no synthetics or blends. Jeans and leather shoes are a requirement. I recommend bringing a T-shirt and a long sleeve shirt. Make sure your pant cuffs go over the tops of your shoes, and there are no holes in any of your clothing. 
Wear only clothing that you can part with, for it may be destroyed. 

If you have your own respirator please bring it, otherwise you will be supplied with one (that you will be responsible for bringing to and from class).

When transporting knives please use a knife roll/case, or tightly wrap it in a towel, and make sure to put a small luggage lock on your bag.
