This course is designed to teach the basics of blacksmithing a knife. Yes, a boyhood dream of many people. We will pound a glowing red hunk of high carbon steel into a useable, functional, and beautiful blacksmithers knife, also called a viking knife. We will go over the techniques of shaping the steel. The proper quenching process and the all so important tempering of the knife. Every one will walk, or drive, home with their very own hand made knife.
I know Monday is an odd day for a class but if you are available you will love this opportunity. If this day does not work just contact me and we can get another group going just for you! This is a class offered from Sarqit Outdoor Living School. www.sarqit.com Cost: $125

Too often after a class I saw the enthusiasm and joy for blacksmithing dwindle from the student's eyes as they walked out the door realizing that they will never have the "equipment" and "tools" needed to continue this exiting skill.
