Knife Making – An Introduction to Metalworking and Blacksmithing
This series of classes covers the fundamental techniques of forging, belt grinding, polishing and sharpening. Once the basic blade is completed, you’d also be taught on heat treatment for annealing and hardening before the final bevel is ground. This course also covers some basic woodworking skills for making the knife handles. Knife making is a great project to get started on metalworking as the product is small and manageable which allows you to fine tune the work extensively.
