This is the 4 knives that 2 students took home after my 2 day integral forging class. These knives were forged from 2 pieces of 52100 round bar that was 12 inched long. A blade forged on both ends and then cut and the tang drawn out. The blade style and handle shape is chosen by the student with Bois D Arc being the standard handle material. Other material can be used at an additional cost. The cost of the class is $350.00 per student and I can handle up to 3 students at a time. I have no minimum number of students so it can be a one on one for personal instructions. The minimum age is probably around 10 years old. If the student can drive a 16 penny nail into a 2 X 4, they can probably do the forging necessary to make the knife. I do touch up the blade if needed and help make sure that the knives are something they can be proud to show their friends. Included in the tuition is a place to stay and noon meals furnished the two days of class. We have a one bedroom guest house with twin beds and a couch if needed. A refrigerator, stove, micro wave and coffee maker are available for the students use. Usually, the students are done by 3:00 on the second day and are headed home. The dates of the class are what ever is mutually agreed upon and can be during the week or a weekend. The student should have a long sleeve shirt, gloves, and safety glasses. All the rest is furnished. I do have an air hammer, press, forge and other equipment as needed. You learn to use what I have and are free to copy anything I have made, including knives. 🙂 My cell phone number is 918-207-8076 and my email is firstname.lastname@example.org . If you have any questions, please let me know.
For a single student with a limited time for knife making, I can do a one day class that is usually over by 5 o’clock the same day. I do help out and we both work on the knives to get them completed. You get two knives in half the time for the same cost. Week days or week ends, it will be a time that is mutually agreed upon by both the student and myself.
