In this one day lesson the student will learn to forge, heat treat, and grind a simple blacksmith's knife.   In this lesson, the student will focus on hammer and tong control, heat control on oddly shaped objects, how important the order of operations is in forging, and the nuances of thermal cycling and heat treating.  The knife will be forged and normalized in the morning, annealed at lunch, ground and heat treated in the afternoon, and sharpened as the final step.  The student will leave with a fully finished and functional knife.


Expect a 5-6 hour private lesson.
