Blacksmithing Classes - Blade smithing Classes Indianapolis

“This is awesome!” – Alex S.

  • In the knife making class, we go through the process of hand-forging blades. 
  • You will start with raw material (railroad spikes) and hammer out a knife you designed.
  • Important: You don’t need past experience to forge a knife of your own.

      In class, you will learn:

          • How to forge a knife from start to finish
          • Techniques in blacksmithing
          • When to Harden Steel
          • Why and How to Quench
          • The Purpose of Tempering (They Don’t Show This on Forged in Fire)
          • How to Grind Knife Profiles
          • Hand-sharpening techniques
