Registration is closed

                                                        Students will learn how to forge a knife out of a horseshoe by hot cutting and shaping. This is a wonderful class to learn hammer control and establishing bevels through hammer blows. In this class, tongs will be introduced so there might be a learning curve for those who have never used the tool before. Students will have to balance using tongs in one hand and hammering with the other to establish bevels and flatten the steel.

There will be no refunds within 14 days of the event.
