Studio classes


People take bladesmithing courses for many reasons. Some aspire to be bladesmiths or want to level up their skills. Others attend simply for the experience of hammering on steel and making a knife, and still, others enjoy bladesmithing as stress relief.

On a master level, Jason teaches beginner and experienced makers his approach to bladesmithing from concept to completion. Makers will learn about knife design: blade and handle shape, edge geometry, and functionality. Sessions will cover forging with hand hammers on an anvil, power hammer, and press.

Makers will also learn heat-treating techniques, including thermal cycling, normalizing, hardening, and tempering. Jason will demonstrate grinding techniques working with each maker’s skill level.


A $300 non-refundable deposit is required to secure your spot in your chosen session. Classes are designed to accommodate 6 makers but cap at 5 to allow schedule flexibility. We know life happens; please give us as much advanced notice as possible if you need to reschedule. We will work with you, and your $300 non-refundable deposit will be credited to your next scheduled session.

Makers must be at least 18 to register.
