This is a 2 day class concentrating on the particular techniques of forging a seax with Jacek Robótka of Jorgen Craft.
We will forge 8-10 inch broken back seax (without sheath).
No prior experience is needed and the class will guide you through:
· Using a gas forge
· Forging the blade to shape
· Thermocycling (reducing grain growth, which is an undesirable effect of over heating steel)
· Blade shaping, using grinder file and abrasive paper
· Heat treating
· Blade finishing, sharpening, and edge testing
. Fitting a simple handle
The course is open to all aged 18+ who can swing a hammer... I can cater for two or three people, please get in touch with any specific requirements.
The course will be held 9am to 5pm . Duration of the class is 2 days.

Amazing, thorough, full-filled.
Jorgencraft actually provided me with a bespoke weekend 1on1 to make a personalised item of a cut throat razor and sheath. During this time I was taught metalwork, forging, leather work and used dozens of tools.
The workshop has every tool known to man and the teacher is able to make and teach anything under the sun from clothing to weaponry.
Utterly amazing and surpassed my expectations....
Thank you so much :)
Response from Jorgen Craft:Thank you very much for your feedback. We are glad you have enjoyed the class with is.
