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.
