If you're intrigued by fire, hot metal, and handmade things than this experience is what you're looking for! During your experience you yourself will forge a solid, functional, and decorative knife from a railroad spike. To get the experience started we will have you place your railroad spikes in the forge and heat it to over 2000 degrees. As the steel gets to temp you will grab your blacksmith tongs, pull the spike from the forge, place it on the anvil, grab your hammer and start swingin'! Don't worry, we'll go first to show you how it's done and will be right by you the whole time to ensure you get it right. After just the first hour your blade will start to take shape. When you have worked hammer and anvil to craft a solid shape to your knife, you will finish shaping and sharpening it using various tools known to blacksmiths for generations, you'll be doing the real thing! Then we will heat treat and oil quench to harden the blade steel. A little finishing and you'll have a finished steel blade made by your own hands. We can even mail your blade to your home if you need us too. It is our hope you'll learn, create, and have a blast doing it!
