Bladesmithing (Full Day)

In the first portion of this course (day 1) we cover the foundational principles of bladesmithing including design, forging, heat treating, and finishing knives. We also emphasize physics, geometry, chemistry, and the history of bladesmithing. All equipment, supplies, and safety gear are provided as part of the class fees. This class goes from 9 AM till 5 PM. It is a full day & is located in Heber Utah. This class is a lot of work & physical labor.

 This class is led by professional bladesmith and guest instructor Dan Olsen of 4D Blades. Dan is a gifted and talented smith. Along with Dan's amazing skills in smithing, he is also a wilderness skills and survival skills instructor, with a wealth of knowledge in wild plants. We are excited to have Dan joining us for this course.
