THE SMITHY’S KNIFE – Beginners
Following 1-day workshop is on offer:
- Sun Sept 12th 8:30am – 4:30pm – spots available
The workshop is intended for people who have little to no experience in forging or knife making but students need to be prepared for a hands on experience and some physical output will be required. Minimum age is 18 unless accompanied by an adult.
Robbie Alderson will teach students all the necessary steps to make a traditional hand forged knife. The process will involve forging and shaping a high carbon steel blade, hardening and sharpening the blade and shaping a handle. The multi-talented Ron Blint will assist with the fashioning of some leather sheaths.
