This is a 1-day beginners class, where you will learn how to forge and finish your own handmade knife! Our classes of up to eight students are a great team-building experience and are suitable for all skill levels. Students will receive an induction covering basic use of the forge, blacksmithing tools and power tools along with standard workshop health & safety practices.

In this class, participants make a small utility/paring knife, roughly 20cm total length (blade length around 10cm) with a timber handle.

This class will cover:
Forging - You will be drawing out the steel (this will depend on what kind of steel your working with) and forging the profile of your knife

Grinding and sanding - You will be using the angle grinder and belt sander to refine your knife profile, remove forge marks and clean back your blade

Heat treating the blade - The knife will be hardened and tempered to give it the hardness, toughness and flexibility it needs to perform as a knife.

Handle making - You can select a handle material from our stocks or bring your own timber/handle material. You will measure the handle material to fit the tang then sand it down to your selected design.

Sharpening - Finally, the blade will be sharpened and ready for use.
