For this course you will ideally have had previous forging experience. The aim in this class is to make a larger knife, such as a chefs knife, bowie or scramseax (viking) style blade. This will be created by fire-welding a sheet of carbon steel in-between other steel or wrought iron. This will then create a 3 layer laminate steel billet.
You will then forge this billet into the shape of your knife, heat treat, grind the blade and then finish it off using a choice of handle material(s).
This will be finished off using a range of techniques and styles, some of which are covered in any of our beginners courses. Forging experience is preferred but not required for this course.
