CLASS: Forging a Chef Knife

April 27 - April 28

Saturday and Sunday
9 am – 4 pm

A knife is perhaps the most basic, elemental tool, and a good chef’s knife will make a big difference in the kitchen. Forged properly from a good carbon steel and ground and honed to a razor edge, the Japanese-style blade will give many years of reliable, versatile service.

This will become the blade your hand will automatically reach for when you need to prepare a meal. In this class, you will forge a 7-inch, Japanese-style chef’s knife out of a high-carbon steel bar, stamp it with your initials, differentially harden it to produce a Japanese-style heat treatment, temper it, attach a handle, and hand-hone it to a razor sharpness on a water stone. The photo represents the knife you will be making. The class will also cover the ergonomic forging method, and the theory and practice of heat-treating steel. The knife, and anything else you make is yours to take home.

The total cost is $480, which includes all materials and safety equipment. No previous blacksmithing experience required.

This class is limited to 8 students.
