September 18th, 19th, 25th, 26th5pm-9pm each night

This is not your dad’s shed axe...she is fast and light.

In this four session class you will be making a classic spike tomahawk. We will be starting with a 1.25lb billet of 4140 and going through slitting and drifting the eye, forging out the blade and spike, proper heat treating technique, handle shaping and hafting, and grinding and sharpening.

We highly recommend having gone through the entire Blacksmithing Foundational Skills Series (Blacksmithing 100’s-400’s) and at least one Introduction to Knife Grinding class before attempting this class.

Please arrive for your class at least fifteen 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.
