Class Description


What you'll learn in this metal working class:

Over two class sessions, learn how to shape, grind, and heat treat a small, every day carry knife. Pick from three designs and two sizes.  Walk away with something you can be proud of, and a new skill set.  

This class tends to run long (an extra hour at most).

Returning Utility Knife students have the option to sign up for the class again, and choose a more customized blade and handle design. Students can choose from three options: kitchen herb chopper, paring knife, or tanto/tactical knife.

15 years and older only. 18 or older encouraged.

Important Notes:

  • Vaccination is REQUIRED for all classes. There are no exceptions to this.
  • You must print and sign this waiver form, one per participant, prior to the class

What to wear and bring:

  • You MUST wear a mask to and from the shop - ideally a respirator. As soon as you arrive please sanitize or wash your hands - we will then review other safety protocols in person. If you do not feel well play it safe and stay home!
  • Only wear natural fiber clothing, no synthetics or blends. Jeans and leather shoes are a requirement. I recommend bringing a T-shirt and a long sleeve shirt. Make sure your pant cuffs go over the tops of your shoes, and there are no holes in any of your clothing. 
  • Wear only clothing that you can part with, for it may be destroyed. You will not get to forge if you do not follow these rules.
  • If you have your own respirator please bring it, otherwise you will be supplied with one (that you will be responsible for bringing to and from class).
  • When transporting knives please use a knife roll/case, or tightly wrap it in a towel, and make sure to put a small luggage lock on your bag.

Refund Policy

Please be advised that at the time being all classes are non-refundable.

  • 3 business days notice of class absence is required. A $75 fee is applied per each day missed.
  • Each student is allotted one free rescheduled dates per Small, Medium, Large, or Sword project.

Question from Ian H.
Can I use a found railroad spike for my knife material?
Answer from Brenda L. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
Hi Ian. Unfortunately, that is not an option, Theo Rock Nazz uses much higher quality steel in the class. Hope this helps!
