Beginner Bladesmithing: Seahorse Knives

April 28 @ 9:30 am - 12:00 pm
Forge your own small knife and learn about blacksmithing along the way!

This is a required pre-req for advanced classes to come!

In this class we will cover forging out a small, simple, all-steel knife along with some blacksmithing history, tooling information, and other basic concepts. Once the forging is complete, we will heat treat the knives and then grind to an edge. Students will then be able to take their finished knives home for a final temper in a home oven.

Age 16+ (Under 18 MUST be accompanied by a guardian)

Please wear cotton or non synthetic clothes that you don’t mind getting very dirty, full-length pants, and close-toed shoes.

Brenden Bohannon is a full-time blacksmith, bladesmith, and lifelong artist hailing from Johnson City Tennessee. The opportunity to appear on the History Channel’s “Forged in Fire” led Brenden to become a full-time teaching Smith. He focuses on iron age designs and functional pieces that will last a lifetime.

*Supported by partnership with Engage Kingsport. This project is funded under a Grant Contract with the State of Tennessee, Tennessee Arts Commission.
