Carbon Steel Chopper Apr 20-22, 2022 (Deposit only)
A camp knife, as I define it is the marriage of a knife and an axe. It's powerful and capable of heavy use in the woods to clear trails, cut wood for a fire, etc. This class will cover everything from the process of forging a large camp knife from a bar of steel through grinding and heat treating to completion. The knife shown is an example of the kind of knife we'll be making but you can vary the blade or handle to suit your tastes or needs. This is an introductory level class so no experience is required, but certainly won't hurt if you have some.
This is a three-day class, April 20-22, 2022
The class is $1100 for the three-day class. In order to book the class, only a $100 deposit is collected. The balance can be paid when you arrive by cash, check, or credit card. Class is limited to four people. You must be at least 18 years of age at this time.
Travel: If you are thinking about traveling here for a class, here's some info. There's a great regional airport about 20 minutes from the shop in Blountville, TN (airport code: TRI). There are several hotels very close as well. The Fairfield Inn and Suites (brand new) and the Hampton Inn (Bristol, TN) are the closest, but there are many more just a short drive away. The shop is in Bristol, VA, but we are a border city so when searching for a hotel, hotels in Bristol, TN are in the same town.
