“FORGING A BLACKSMITH’S KNIFE”
On this 1 day class we will forge a Blacksmith’s knife Commonly known as the Viking Blacksmith’s knife, this knife is is also known as a Viking Knife, Blacksmith’s Knife and also a Viking Lady’s knife. I have based the design of these blades upon some iron age bog find knives from Denmark, having altered the shape a little from the original to make them more ergonomic and feel good in the hand.
This is a one piece knife with a forged handle. We will go through the basic forging, heat treating and sharpening of the blade to end up with a finished knife in one day !
This is a perfect introduction to the craft of the Bladesmith. Safety equipment is provided for all the classes but please ensure that you have non-flamable clothing and sturdy shoes (preferably leather). No shell suits or fleeces!
This class will be from 9am – 5pm/6pm.
