Actual quote from a recent student: "They don't show you this sh!t on Forged in Fire!"
Our knife school consists of three types of classes:
“Stock Removal,” where you design, layout your template on a flat steel, cut it out, then profile it to the exact shape. Then comes Heat Treating. After that you will surface grind the knife and grind the blade. Next is handle setting and finishing finally sharpening the blade. This is a two day school approximately 4-6 hrs per day. Cost $500 per person
“Forging Class,” we teach basis forging principles and practices. You will work the forge, anvil, hammer and press to create your own blade. Then you will finish shaping the knife on the grinder. Heat treating and then surface grinding and edge grinding. Next is handle setting and blade sharpening. This is a two day school 6-8 hrs a day. Cost is $750 due to more equipment and disposables required to complete the knife making.
“Damascus Class,” is similar to the “Forging Class,” except you will learn the additional techniques required to make Damascus. We recommend that you complete the basic “Forging Class,” prior to taking this class. This is a three day class, 8 hrs per day. Cost is $1000
