7 Day Sword Course

Have you always wanted to make and take home your own sword ?

Well, here is your chance !

The aim of this course is to forge out your own sword in seven days.

I will take you through the process of:

  • Forging the blade to shape
  • Grinding and shaping the blade
  • Hardening and tempering the blade
  • Sharpening and edge testing
  • Fitting a cross guard, handle and pommel

We will be making double-edged sword blades, basic cross guards and pommels. There may be the opportunity for you to forge other blade styles (depending on your interest and ability).

These will be real “sharp swords” and we will have a chance to test the blades against ‘Tatami’ mats and hanging rope.

The course will be conducted using basic hand tools, hammer, anvil and fire ,there will also be powered grinders at hand to speed the process along.

This will be an intensive 7 day course. No previous forging experience is needed. You will however need determination !

The course will be held from Monday to Saturday 9am to 5pm, Sunday 10am to 4pm.

Materials and 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.

Course Price: £1100
