A bunch of us gathered Sunday January 29 to learn forged knife making from our professional knife sharpener member! We fired up the propane forge and started bashing away on the anvil. We also used the plasma cutter to pre-cut the steel and got a little training in as well. Two members completed the forging process. They will grind and heat treat later.
We discussed other tools we can buy to continue knife making. Looking at a mini mill, grinders, knife steel, and others. We're doing a leather class soon to make sheaths.
