Hunting Knife Class Apr 8-9, 2024 (Deposit only)
This class will cover everything from the process of making a full-tang hunter from a bar of steel through grinding and heat treating to completion. This class will not have any forging. Instead we will focus on design, grinding, heat treating, and finishing.
Compared to a forged hunter class, this class will have more time focused on accurate grinding, metal finishing, and handle shaping. 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-moderate level class so no experience is required, but certainly won't hurt if you have some. This class will be of particular benefit to those who are making knives and want to fine-tune their process.
This is a two-day class, April 8-9, 2024
The class is $1000 for the two-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.

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.
