    Forging Bottle Openers

    Punching through hot metal is a technique used in a time before drills and other methods for boring holes in metal were possible. Students who take this class will learn and utilize this technique in conjunction with various forms of shaping metal to produce a bottle opener. This class is designed around the precision students will need to successfully create a working bottle opener while honing their sculpting skills. Though no previous knowledge is required for this course it is suggested that students have a basic understanding of blacksmithing.

    Forging A Rail Road Spike Knife

     As far as knives are concerned, the harder the steel, the better the edge, however, the harder edge makes for a brittle knife. A balance is needed between the soft flexible metal and the hard brittle metal to achieve a knife that will hold an edge without breaking.In this class more techniques for blade smithing will be covered, including various heat treatments, tapering, and tempering methods used to maximize strength with durability. Students will utilize a high carbon railroad spike and learn methods that induce carbon into the metal while also learning how to temper in a process called normalization. The metal will then posses both features of a durable and hard metal that is ideal for knives.

    Forging Bottle Openers

    In this class students will work O1 tool steel into a flat chisel and a drifting punch. Tool steel is sensitive to heat treating and tougher than mild steel. It’s because of this that most tools are made using this alloyed steel. In this class students will learn how to work and shape the metal and proper ways to quench the metal in what is called heat treatment. Students will learn normalization, and proper tempering techniques to make the steel stronger and suitable for heavy use.

    Forging horseshoe knives

    Students will learn how to forge a knife out of a horseshoe by hot cutting and shaping. This is a wonderful class to learn hammer control and establishing bevels through hammer blows. In this class, tongs will be introduced so there might be a learning curve for those who have never used the tool before. Students will have to balance using tongs in one hand and hammering with the other to establish bevels and flatten the steel.

    Forging Hammers

    In this course students will take old sledge hammers and turn them into high quality forging hammers. This will involve taking an existing hammer head and reforming it into a new type of hammer using custom forging dies. Students will learn how to shape contours using the bench grinder and belt grinder then they will assemble the hammer into new wooden handle!

    Forging axes

    In this class students will learn how to take one metal object and transform it into another in a case of extreme transformation. Students will take old hammers consisting of tool steel and transform the striking surface into an axe. Students will also be introduced to drifting dies designed to widen the eye for proper fitting to an axe handle. From here students will learn how to shape and refine the blade using the grinder and finally finishing it off with a fair amount of sanding before polishing. The final task is the heat treatment to temper the blade to withstand heavy blows. This will involve normalization, oil quenching, and heat tempering.
