Ever seen someone making a sword in a movie and thought it looked way cool? If so, this class is for you! Join us for a 4 hour swordmaking class (9-2 pm), where you’ll choose a wooden blank cut in one of several Bronze Age patterns and finish it using power tools and hand sanding. Next, you’ll get your hands dirty making a sand cast of the wooden original, and watch as we pour an exact copy of it in molten aluminum! When it is finished, wrap the handle in leather and take it home! $85 Class size is limited to 15, and often sells out, so grab a friend and sign up for your class today.

For a preview of class, check out our recent appearance on Rooster Teeth's Burnie Vlog, where we cast a bronze khopesh with Ellie. The episode has been one of their most popular, and has been viewed over 275K times!
