Forging a Blacksmith's Knife and Sheath with Jorden LaMothe
The term "Blacksmith Knife" refers to a knife with a forged steel handle. Blacksmith knives are excellent, rugged tools for hunting, camping, hiking and everyday carry. The class will cover blade forging, grinding, heat treating and leather sheath making, as students construct a blacksmith knife and sheath from start to finish.
Some prior blacksmithing experience is recommended, but not imperative for this tricky piece of forge work.
Each student will leave with a finished knife ready for his or her next outdoor adventure.
NOTE: Students are required to wear non-synthetic clothing, long pants and closed-toe shoes. Students may bring their own forging hammers if they wish.
