This is a fast-paced class that covers the fundamentals of making a high-quality, forged knife without the use of expensive grinding and heat treating equipment. Students will develop their hammer control and filing technique and learn about the metallurgy behind proper heat treatment, as they complete a hidden-tang, hunting knife with a hot-punched guard and a hardwood handle.
