February 16 & 17 - Pack Axe: Blacksmithing Intensive

500.00

February 16 & 17 - 10:30 AM - 8:00 PM (with 1 ½  hour break for lunch)

In this two-day intensive, you’ll start with 2lbs of steel and turn it into a 21” hafted pack axe. Your neighbors are going to be really impressed when you start chopping your own wood! These are all the skills you’ll learn during the process: slitting and drifting the eye, forging out the blade, properly heat treating, handle shaping and hafting, grinding, and sharpening.

Prerequisites: Blacksmithing 100s (or four Introduction to Blacksmithing/Bladesmithing classes) and one Introduction to Knife Grinding Class

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 shoes. Bring plenty of water and be sure to eat a hearty meal before class.  We will have a 1 ½ hour lunch break each day. Lunch is not provided. Please bring a lunch from home or plan to eat at one of the many local restaurants near the shop.
