You've already made a simple blacksmith knife.
We'll be making knives with rat-tail handles, whittle-tang knives with wooden handles, knives with wooden slab handles. Knives made from automotive coil spring, knives made from bed-rail, knives made from strapping steel, knives made from saw blades. Utility knives, cooking knives, nut choppers, craft knives, necklace knives, camping knives... You get the picture, lots of knives in as many ways as we have time for.
To some degree, the choice of knives made will be influenced by the class' desires, but the instructor reserves the right to stipulate the occasional "learning experience".
Gift Certificates for Knives, Knives, and More Knives are available.
