Feel free to contact me with any questions you may have about this class:
This class focuses on hammer control, an overview of heat treatment, and basic grinding and sanding of blades. There is great precision involved in making a good knife, and you will do better in this class if you already have some hammer control, and a little practice under your belt. This said, being a complete newbie won’t stop you from understanding the class material, or creating a functional knife. But it’s harder for a beginner with no experience to forge a blade that is smooth enough not to require extensive grinding to finish. If you can routinely drive a nail without making hammer marks in the wood you drive the nail into, you should be fine in this class.
