« back to classes page
This class will take you from start to finish through the design, grinding, and finishing of your own custom fixed-blade knife. Free-hand flat and hollow grinding will be demonstrated, as well as heat treating and tempering, as participants fabricate a knife blade of their own design. Learn silver-brazing techniques, design bolsters and hand guards for your blade, and discuss handle materials, designs, and decorative file work. Finishing practices will help you complete your own custom knife!
