Goat N Hammer
Bottle openers are a fun way to start your journey into blacksmithing. In the Scrolled Bottle Opener class we will introduce you to some of the basic processes of blacksmithing including: spreading, bending, and scrolling.
Leaves are a classic motif in traditional blacksmithing. In this class we will make a simple leaf form and introduce you to some of the basic processes of blacksmithing: tapers, set downs, creating a pre-former, controlled spreading, chasing, dapping, and forming.
Our take on a hobbyist favorite, the Railroad Spike Knife is a fun place to begin your journey into smithing. In this class we will go through material isolations, creating a pre-former, beveling and shaping the blade, profile grinding, and heat treat, and finally we will sharpen your knife to a razors edge.
This is a perfect next step after you’ve taken Goat ‘n’ Hammer’s Railroad Spike Knife class! Since you’ve decided to continue developing your skills as a knife maker, you’ll learn set-downs, making a pre-former, beveling, and controlling shape while beveling.
