Details

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 broadsword... in miniature.

These are a long time favorite of our instructor and he carries this little sword daily.

The wood grain pattern of damascus style laminate steel is highlighted by a brass cross guard, and pommel with a wire-wrapped 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. Shape your tang, apply filework to the blade. Then we will heat treat and quench your blades.

On day 2 we will cut out and finish our cross guards and pommels. We will shape, solder and finish the handles and finish and polish and sharpen the blades.

We will finish up by fabricating a leather sheath to hold your new sword.

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 $180
