Time: 9 AM – 3 PM

Location: Adam’s Forge

Instructor: Gary Standke

Prerequisite: Letter Opener Discovery Class

Join us to create a paring knife to use in the kitchen or take on your next picnic.   This is a high carbon steel knife made from O1 steel.

We start by creating the handle section that you can size to fit your hand perfectly. Then the blade is forged and heat-treated. Lastly, we will grind it to the level of sharpness you desire.

The handle will be cord wrapped for both comfort and durability. We will discuss other handle options you can try on your own.

While we will not have time in this class to make a sheath, we will show you examples so you can do this on your own.

You will leave with a complete knife, ready to use.

Tools: Students do not need to bring tools; we have everything that you will need. However, if you happen to have the following, please bring them so that you have the opportunity to use your own!

Coarse files (i.e. 12 inch Heavy Duty Set from Harbor Freight)

Tongs for ¼” x ¾” stock

Class runs from 9am – 3pm with a one hour meal break.
