Date: August 17 & 18, 2024

Time: 9 AM – 5 PM

Location: Adam’s Forge

Instructor: Ben Abbott

Please note: This workshop takes place over two consecutive days.  

Skill Level: Seasoned Beginner and up. This workshop will require skills on the anvil and experience on the grinders to get the most out of Ben’s instruction.

An EDC knife is an everyday carry knife. It’s the most reliable one that you keep on you all the time. The EDC is light, small and practical. Every bladesmith has their own take on how they forge these and now is your chance to learn from Ben Abbott, the undefeated Forged in Fire champ, on his approach to forging this indispensable piece.

This knife is the perfect size for everyday use, from opening boxes to cutting birthday cake!  We will go through forging, grinding and heat treating, plus handle design and ergonomics.

This workshop will run from 9:00am – 5:00pm with an hour meal break
