Basic bladesmithing




























I have been getting alot of requests of late to teach people how to make their own knives.I have taught many already but have now decided I will start teaching basic bladesmithing on weekends from my shop. I will be charging 150.00 per student max of 2-3  for the weekend class which includes both saturday and sunday and they will be long days. Contact me for further details
click on the link below to send me an e-mail. I am located in the Green Mountains of Vermont, Waterbury Ctr
Class is open and ready to go. We will be using a standard coal forge for the class and I have my twin Hay Budden anvils and one other to work on. We will also be using my air hammer for some of the work. If you wish to learn basic blacksmithing I can also do that for the same price.
