If you are interested in learning about bladesmithing, we’ve set up an extremely well-equipped shop for you to learn in. We offer a variety of classes from an introductory level through more advanced students all open to the public. This is a great way to get familiar with what we do, and to get hands-on experience under the eyes of an experienced skilled smith.
Learn the basic processes of forging, grinding, and heat treating a simple self handle knife with Justin Workman.
You will forge to shape your own blacksmith knife - some folks call them Viking knives – up to a 6” blade and will have the option of making a kydex sheath or leather belt sheath.
You'll learn to drift and forge to shape your own tomahawk- bearded or traditional- from a single 1 1/2" x 1 1/2" x 4" piece of o1 tool steel; then differentially heat treat making it a fully functional tool.
Currently we are not offering any classes, check back later as things change.
