This is a 1-day beginners class where you will learn how to forge and finish your own handmade kitchen knife.

You will have full access to Shea's studio, the induction will cover basic use of the forge, blacksmithing tools, the power hammer, grinding and cutting tools and standard workshop health & safety practices.

It is not necessary to have previous experience for this course!

This class will cover:
- Forging
You will be drawing out the steel (this will depend on what kind of steel your working with) and forging the profile of your knife.

- Grinding and sanding
You will be using the angle grinder and belt sander to refine your knife profile, remove forge marks and clean back your blade.

- Heat treating the blade
The knife will be hardened and tempered to give it the hardness, toughness and flexibility it needs to perform as a knife.

- Handle making
You can select a handle material from our stocks or bring your own timber/ handle material. You will measure the handle material to fit the tang then sand it down to your selected design.

- Sharpening
Finally, you will learn how to sharpen the blade ready for use.

Please note: We allow students the option to bring their own steel/handle stock, please contact us prior to the class so can advise on the suitability of your materials.

There is a limit of only four places per course.
