3 day class
Making tools is the heart of iron work from the earliest days. There is nothing quite like using tools that you have made yourself, and an ax is one tool that everyone needs. It can be used to split fire wood, clear fence rows, create rustic (or not so rustic) wood products, or you can carry it with you on a hiking trail.
In this three-day course you will make a medium size hand ax using the traditional methods of laminating a high-carbon steel edge into a low-carbon steel body.
The Instructor of this class studied in Sweden at the Internationally renowned Gransfors.
