Bladesmithing; Forging a Puukko Knife (3-day course)

April 19 @ 9:00 am - April 21 @ 5:00 pm


In this three day course you will create your very own fixed blade knife, based on the traditional knife of the Saami people of Lapland; the “Puukko”. You will design, forge, grind and heat treat the blade, as well as build your own handle from a variety of materials, and make your own custom leather sheath. We will discuss blade profile, ergonomics and handle geometry and put these principles to use creating a functional work of art. In addition to making your own complete bushknife, you can expect to leave with all the basic skills to create your own knives at home using a minimal set up.
