$120 per Adult | $40 per Child
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.
$80 per Adult | $40 per Child
Begin with a rod of steel and make your very own functional bottle opener! Learn an exciting array of techniques such as twisting, bending, scrolling, and tapering hot steel. If anyone in your group doesn’t drink alcohol, we’ll help them make a towel/coat hook instead.
Difficulty: We tested a group of 6 year olds and they all did great. Least physical of all options.
$95 per Adult | $40 per Child
