Boot Dagger: Introduction to Knife Grinding (Level III)

August 24th 5 PM - 10 PM

The Boot Dagger Knife Class will introduce you to the stock removal process of knife making. We will use a 2x72 belt grinder to go from stock material to knife, learning how to profile grind and bevel on the machine. We will also learn heat treating, and equipment safety all while having an awesome time with us in the shop!


Making such a cool knife takes a bit of practice, so we recommend having taken at least one Level I and one level II Introduction to Knife Grinding class before trying this one.


Please arrive for your class 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. 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.
