The Kiridashi is the original Japanese utility knife that has historically been used by Samurai and peasants alike.  It’s both light and strong, suitable for a variety of uses.  If you’ve taken the Letter Opener Discovery class, this is a perfect follow up project to build your bladesmithing skills.

Here, you’ll practice precision forging, learn some of the important considerations in blade design and have a chance to try different texturing methods.  This blade is made from tool steel, so you’ll be heat treating, grinding, polishing and hand sharpening as well.

Prerequisite: Letter Opener Discovery Class

This class runs from 9:00am – 3:00pm with an hour meal break.
