I offer small or personal classes with people interested in creating their unique vision under my guidance.
Come in and bring to life the knife or sword that's been in the back of your mind all this time. I'll work with you to bring that historical, video game, movie, or fantasy blade to life on your schedule and at your pace. This is where my love of teaching and creating unique blades come together to make your dream blade a reality. No prior forging experience is required. Materials and safety gear are provided, just wear the right clothing and bring a big water bottle. We typically take 30 to 60 minutes for a group lunch around 1pm except for Sundays.
Expect projects to be broken apart over several (non-consecutive) days/classes. Additional time beyond what's estimated will be discussed on a per-project basis; this is very rarely necessary.
Bring a friend or loved one along to make it a two student class for a discount; couples classes are available.
This is available to adults and children over 10, however a parent must accompany their child.

Intensive One-Day Skills Class - $250
In this one day class we will focus on the part of bladesmithing you are most interested in exploring - improve your hammer control, learn the way I forge integrals, forge some san-mai, whatever you would like to craft.
This is a great way for beginners to dip their toes into knifemaking, and at the end of the day you will walk away with something incredible to show for it.
This class can also be used to start/finish a work in progress knife/sword/ax.
Keep in mind that weekdays the class is 6 hours, but 4 hours on Sundays.
Monday Free Play - $50/day
Come join us Mondays 11am to 5pm for fun at the forge. You will be able to forge, and have access to the knifemaking tools and equipment. You are required to have completed at least one class with me or another teacher, or have provided a portfolio.
You must fill out a waiver for this class found here: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1hnH2tj1s4NoxD6HdWjTDPFVnBDZmmnfMwyirhGAqMZk/edit?usp=sharing

If you purchased your class on CourseHorse, then our cancellation policy applies to your purchase. If you need help cancelling or have any questions, please visit the CourseHorse site in New York and contact their customer service team.
Absence and rescheduling:
48 hours notice of class absence is required, and each student is allotted two reschedulings per project. After two missed/rescheduled classes a $75 fee is applied per each day missed.
What to wear and bring:
Only wear natural fiber clothing, no synthetics or blends. Jeans and leather shoes are a requirement. I recommend bringing a T-shirt and a long sleeve shirt. Make sure your pant cuffs go over the tops of your shoes, and there are no holes in any of your clothing.
Wear only clothing that you can part with, for it may be destroyed. You will not get to forge if you do not follow these rules.
If you have your own respirator please bring it, otherwise you will be supplied with one (that you will be responsible for bringing to and from class).
When transporting knives please use a knife roll/case, or tightly wrap it in a towel, and make sure to put a small luggage lock on your bag.
