Please join us at Dragon’s Breath Forge for this 2-day knife making class, March 25-26.

This class will cover the basics of forging, grinding and heat treating a hidden tang knife (pictured right). Students will learn the basics of hand forging, including heat control, hammer control and basic forging theory. The forged blade will be further refined by hand grinding to prepare it for heat treating. After heat treating the blades will be finished, ground and prepared for handles. A wood handle will then be shaped and attached before the knives are finished and sharpened.
