Intro to Tool Steel; Forging Bushcraft Tools (1-day course)

October 20 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm

In this one-day course we will cover the difference between steel alloys, and the theory behind the hardening/tempering process. We will start by forging a pioneer style flint and steel kit. Students will then move onto making a simple yet highly versatile tool; the stitching awl.
You will be guided through the forging process, and be free to personalize the tools to your taste.
Expect a full day of detailed instruction and practice in this intimate, 4-student, class.
