knife making class

This Saturday I taught a basic knifesmithing class at the Adirondack Folk school. Thirteen students worked on knives while the schools anniversary party went on in the background.   Thanks to everyone, I had a great time!

Here I am in the shop, forging up the stock for class...

Yeah, it's a close up of Scott getting ready for heat treat.

And lastly, a gratuitous shot or two of a fighter I developed a few years back.  This is just about the simplest way to make this thing.
