Intro To Sword, Knife Forging Class To Be Held In Chicago On May 8

Since first blogging about a local introductory class to sword and knife forging in January, I’ve noticed subsequent sessions fill up real fast. Yeah- they’re that popular. For Chicago-area readers interested in the receiving this instruction from Chris Mayor, founder of the Chicago School of Wilderness Skills (first blogged about the two back in February), Dabble.co (not .com) indicates there’s a knife/sword forging class scheduled for May 8 in the city. From the Dabble website:

Intro to Forging: Swords and Knives with Chris Mayor
Metalsmithing Classes in Chicago

Class Info

You’ve marveled at the craftsmen (and women) who can bend metal to their will. Now you’ll have a chance to learn the basics of forging and try it for yourself!

In this class Dabblers will learn proper tool use and shop safety, as well as the principles of design and fabrication of the forged blade. We will show examples of proper heat treatment, hammering and shaping of steel, grinding and sanding, handle attachment, buffing and finishing work, as well as sharpening.

The class format is both lecture and demonstration, however students will be able to get some hands on practice with the forge, hammer, and grinder at the end of class. Students will also receive handouts detailing the process and will have the option of registering for the full blade forging class where you will forge your own knife or sword.

The session is scheduled to take place on Friday, May 8, 2015, from 7 to 9 PM at the Cornelia Arts Building (1800 W. Cornelia Ave., Chicago). As I type this Wednesday morning, there’s just 6 spots left. Cost is only $30 to attend.

For more information about the class and to register for it, visit the Dabble website here.
