About the Course

The weekend is taught by Arian Leljak, an experienced blacksmith and teacher. By the end of the weekend you will have completed a knife with wooden or antler handle and a leather sheath. The weekend starts 7-9 on the Friday then all day Saturday and Sunday. Each course will have four participants

You will work to your chosen design to create a blade out of high-carbon steel. You will learn how to harden and temper the steel in order to achieve an excellent cutting edge. The handles will be made of variety of woods, to meet your aesthetic sense and to fit your hand. Finally we will make sheaths by moulding veg-tanned leather.
