Bladesmithing  w/Bob Bordeaux

This two-day course will teach students how to forge a hidden tang knife blade including the basics of how to heat treat and temper blades. Each student goes home with a complete knife.

(Ages 14+)

Please bring a lunch, water, closed toed shoes, long pants, and preferably clothing made from natural fibers. Dress warm for winter workshops! The forge will warm up over the day, but start out chilly.

Blade/Blacksmithing activities require standing on a cement floor and swinging a 2.5 lb hammer for blocks of time up to four hours. Please let us know if you have any physical limitations which could impact your ability to comfortably complete this aspect of the Workshop and we will do our best to plan accommodations.

Minimum Enrollment: Four (participants will be notified one week prior to the class date and refunds issued if minimum is not met) Maximum Enrollment: Five

LCMM Course & Workshop Refund and Cancellation Policy: Refunds are permitted up to one week before the class. After one week before the class, refunds and date changes will not be permitted due to registration minimums. It’s not fair to the other participants for a refund to necessitate the cancellation of a class within one week of the course. If you have questions or special circumstances, please feel free to email or call and we will do our best to accommodate.

  1. Hello,

    Is this class appropriate for adults in their 30s or is it geared more towards high school students. The age requirement says 14+ but I was not sure if it was generally for students or all ages.

      Hello Alex,
      The workshop is for anyone over 14, and there is generally a mix of ages. It is not specifically geared to teens.
