     When it comes to balance, strength and elegance nothing beats a well-made integral knife. The goal of this 5 day workshop will be to complete a hunting knife with a 3 dimensional forged finger guard. Forging progression, material selection, design, handle work and associated pitfalls will be covered. Handle material provided will be exotic or figured domestic wood. This is an intermediate class. All students should be confident in basic knifemaking practices and familiar with use of a power hammer, hand tools and grinders. If you have the ability to make a clean forged hidden tang knife with good fit and finish and want to take your bladesmithing to the next step, this is the class for you.
