Small Damascus Camp Jan 24-26, 2023 (Deposit only)
We'll be making a forged, full-tang, Damascus steel camp knife. Rather than a full-sized chopper, this will be a compact damascus blade that will work well as an all-around camp/hunter. You will learn how to make your own Damascus steel, then forge, grind, heat treat and finish that steel into a finished knife. The knife shown is an example of the kind of knife we'll be making. (Note: the sheath is shown for reference purposes - there will not be a sheath included in this class. Consider signing up for the sheath class immediately following this class.) 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, January 24-26, 2023
The class is $1200 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 local airport about 20 minutes from the shop called Tri-Cities Regional Airport in Blountville, TN (airport code: TRI). There are several hotels very close as well. The Fairfield Inn and Suites (Bristol, TN) and the Hampton Inn (Bristol, TN) are the closest, but there are many more just a short drive away.
