The Karambit Knife class is a great next step in your journey through the stock removal method of knifemaking. In this class we will be using a 2x72 belt grinder to profile, bevel, and sharpen a karambit, which is a more complicated shape than our Levels I and II Introduction to Knife Grinding shapes. You’ll also learn proper heat treating, and equipment safety all while having an awesome time with us in the shop!
This class is pretty tricky. We recommend having taken both a Level I and a Level II Introduction to Knife Grinding class before trying this one.
Please arrive at least thirty minutes before the scheduled start time. Wear non-flammable (high cotton content) long sleeved shirt and long pants and closed-toe, leather shoes. We also recommend wearing a wide brimmed hat or baseball cap. If you have a respirator, please bring it with you. Also bring plenty of water, and be sure to eat a hearty meal before class.
