Are you interested in learning how to forge your own knife? Each class is two days, and by the end of it, you will leave with a finished and handled knife that is sharp. Students start with a 6″ piece of high carbon steel, and will spend the first day forging it into a knife, and learning about the heat treatment process. The second day covers the finishing processes and putting a handle on the blade.

For 2023, we’re going to be teaching in a new location! Right in the middle of downtown Plattsburgh, NY, we’ll be hosting classes at the Strand Center for the Arts.
