Forging A Letter Opener
In this class students will craft a letter opener by flattening and shaping a piece of steel rod into a edged blade. Hammer skills and tolerances will be covered, as well as going over buffing/polishing and the various types of finishes for the blade. This class will involve grinding/sanding and using the buffing wheel. No prior classes or knowledge is required for this class.
