The student will learn advanced techniques on designing and properly laying out the grinding and drilling lines, as well as the handle/scales. Instruction will start from basic grind preparation and end with the student having a finished knife. Students will have the opportunity to do more than one blade if he/she chooses to do so, if the time allows.

Forging an Integral Fighter Knife
October 19-22, 2017 (Thursday-Sunday)
Instructor: Theo Rock Nazz Cost: $375 (1 meal included)
In this Brut De Forge integral Bowie class, students will learn the process Theo, a 2017 Forged in Fire Champion, uses for creating some of his unique fighting knife designs with hamons. Students start by designing and planning an intricate blade with integral guard, then with hammer and fire, bring that blade to life. Students will leave the class with a forged, rough ground, and fully heat trated blade that will include a hamon. This is a forging extensive class, so expect to spend a good deal of time moving metal and make sure to eat a big breakfast!

Axe Forging

Instructor: Liam Hoffman
Cost: $375 (1 meal included)
Join Liam Hoffman, one of History Channel’s 2016 Forged in Fire champions, in a 3-day axe making class!

Liam will demonstrate forging axes using leader and striker techniques with a sledge hammer.

Christmas Knifemaking

Each student will start with a raw piece of metal and leather and turn it into a fully functional finished knife and leather sheath.
