Classes

I've been teaching Bladesmithing for years, always at a school with different equipment and supplies than I'm used to.  I got tired of saying, "At my shop I'd do this differently," so in 2017 I finished setting up an area where I can teach what I want, how I want, in my space.  You want to get into Bladesmithing but don't know where to start?  Or maybe you want to have the experience of making your own knife, from start to finish...to have a taste of what this craft is about.  With classes ranging from one to three days, whether you have experience or not, you can not only have a knife that lasts a lifetime, you'll have the memories as well.

The classes are designed around either a specific knife or a specific process.  The best way to think about it is that the class costs about the same as the knife, if I were to make it.  So you can either buy a new chef's knife from me or for about the same cost, you can come here and make it yourself.

If you have a couple of friends who would like to join you for a class, you can get in touch with me via phone or email and we can set up a special time just for your group.

Here is a summary of classes shceduled at this time (to sign up, look at image links below).

Note: All classes below are scheduled M-F.  Most of the time I have scheduled two classes in the same week, back to back.  This way, if you would like to spend a week here, You can take two classes, and take home two very different knives from the same week.
