Knife Making Made Simple with Tim McCreight

Friday- Saturday, March 23-24, 10-6p

Using standard jewelry tools, students will make a handsome and functional knife. Each participant will make a practical and elegant fixed blade knife that can be used in the kitchen, workshop, or garden. Techniques covered include sawing, drilling, filing, riveting, soldering and heat treatment, all of which will be explained in commonsense language that even an engineer can understand. Knowledge of jewelry skills is helpful, but not required.
