Carving Knife – Full

April 25, 2020 @ 8:00 am - April 26, 2020 @ 4:00 pm


Instructor: Lucian Avery
Length: 2 Days
Skill Level: All Skill Levels 
Hours: 8:00 a.m – 4:00 p.m
Material Cost: $20.00 at time of registration

On the first day, students will forge a Scandinavian style carving knife blade. The bevel will be filed carefully by hand. Then the blade will be hardened and tempered. On the second day, students will finish up their knife blade and make a wooden handle shaped to fit comfortably in their hand. Next, the blade will be honed to a razor edge. After the knife is complete, each student will make a birch bark sheath.

Forging technique, steel selection, basic metallurgy, filing, heat treating, and sharpening willbe covered as well as local wood selection and, if we have time, safe carving grips.

This workshop is best suited to students with basic experience managing a coal fire and drawing a taper. Beginners who are up for a challenge are also welcome. No forge welding experience is needed.
