BBQ Fork From Blacksmithing Course

BBQ Fork

Step into the shoes of a blacksmith and transform a rod of steel into your very own functional BBQ Fork! Using traditional blacksmithing techniques, a forge, and fire, participants will learn how to twist, bend, scroll, taper, and split hot metal!

Horseshoe Knife From Seattle Blacksmithing Class

Horseshoe Knife

Begin with half a horseshoe and walk away with the coolest knife you’ve ever seen! Perfect for a steak knife, paring knife, or box cutter. In case it’s not enough to forge a knife, you’ll also use some super fun power tools such as belt sanders.

Difficulty: We tested this on a group of 12 year olds and they all did great. Most fulfilling and exciting of all options simply because you’ll see a horseshoe transform into a beautiful knife. Great option if you enjoy a bit of critical thinking and something truly unique.

Difficulty: We tested a group of 6 year olds and they all did great. Least physical of all options.
