Knife Making Class held every Sunday.

This is an informal hands-on  class but there will be talk and instruction on the structure and composition of blade material, etching, file work, use of tools, various methods, mosaic and Damascus will also be discussed. Constant guidance is given every step of the way.

This is a hands-on course as most students will finish a knife of their design. Guest speakers and knife makers occasionally show up and for those occasions I will try and post under “News & Events”. We also discuss decorative etching, file work, and Damascus. Everyone enjoys themselves.
