Qué harás

*IF YOUR PREFERRED CLASS IS FULL/UNAVAILABLE, PLEASE SEND ME A MESSAGE TO SEE IF WE CAN SNEAK YOU IN
*WE CAN SHIP YOUR KNIFE IF YOU'RE UNABLE TO TRAVEL WITH IT

In this 3 hour class, you'll begin with a horseshoe and end with your very own, handmade knife! Absolutely no prior experience is required and is suitable for ages 8+. No lifting required and little strength necessary, though hand-eye coordination always helps (READ DISCLAIMER AT BOTTOM PRIOR TO SCHEDULING).

The curriculum is designed to flow seamlessly and be tons of fun:
1) You'll begin the class by putting on safety gear and reviewing safety procedures.
2) You'll use traditional blacksmithing equipment (forges, hammers, and anvils) to forge a knife from a horseshoe.
3) Each step will be demonstrated and guidance will be provided throughout the class.

DISCLAIMER: Participants will be using hammers to move hot steel. This implies that your arm may become sore from hammering! Don't worry, we've never had a student fail to complete a project. If you have any disabilities that may prevent you from standing and hammering for long periods of time, please let me know prior to scheduling.
Other things to note: Open-toed shoes are not allowed. Avoid synthetic pants & shirts (best to have cotton jeans & a cotton top).

NOTE: Your class may be led by either me (Max) or one of my instructors (Buddy, Spiff, Gage, Jack, Randy, or Alair).

I opened this experience with two goals in mind: First, to get you excited about blacksmithing by getting your hands dirty; Second, to facilitate the most fun you've ever had with your companions!

My passion for blacksmithing stems from a love of knife making, which I've been doing recreationally for over 18 years. Only in the last year did I make the decision to leave my career in technology to follow this calling full-time.

Donde estarás

You'll feel as if you were transported to an old-world blacksmith shop, though you'll remain in the heartland of Seattle's industrial district known as SoDo.

The shop is a 10 minute drive south from downtown Seattle and has plenty of free parking.

I got this experience for my husband, my daughter and me for Father's Day. I ended up having surgery and being unable to go, so my husband and daughter went without me. They loved it and it captured the essence of Father's Day! They had a great time and made a great memory.

Great introductory knife making class for first knife experience. Learned some basic skills that can be build off of. We had Spiff and he taught well.

This was such a cool experience! I took my brother as a birthday gift. We worked with Randy who was fantastic. He explained everything well, as incredibly helpful, and was very personable. Highly recommend!

Amazing experience! They helped us step by step and now we have awesome knives that we made ourselves! Just be prepared to leave LOTS of time to get there. We almost didn’t make it due to the Seattle traffic craziness. (Especially if you are from out of town.) But they graciously let us in and we had a blast!
