Forging course – How to forge a knife
Now you have the opportunity to forge your own knife. Gränsfors Bruk has developed a “have-a-go” course in knife forging. This is the perfect course for people who want to try something very different, or a group of friends who have already done it all.
With the help of examples and instructions, you will be given a step-by-step introduction, in a group of maximum 8 people, to the methods and holds involved in hot forging. You will learn to light and use the forge and get to know a little more about the tools and material used.
The course is aimed at giving you basic knowledge and practical experience of the different elements of knife forging. Besides basic knowledge of the forge and the tools that are used, you will be given the opportunity to forge different knives and knife blades of carbon steel. Step-by-step, you will learn about the various elements, from lighting the forge to shaping and working the hot steel. During the course, you will also learn how to grind, harden and temper the knife blades. You will also be able to try welding a laminated knife blade.
No previous knowledge is required.
The date for 2020 will be published shortly.
