Spend the day learning the tips and tricks of professional knife and blade making at Phoenix Forge.
We start out making a basic letter opener to get you warmed up and used to working with the forge, after a cuppa we get started on forging a true working knife. we go from selecting the right type of tool steel in to forging a rough blade shape out, then the shape is refined by grind the bevels. From there we demonstrate how to heat treat, and then depending on the style you will get to shape a suitable handle to fit.
By the end of the day everyone should have both a letter opener and forged knife to take away with them.
The class is for over 18’s only
