In this five day class two students will hand forge a single bar of steel, grind, heat treat, rub to a working polish and begin hilt work for their very own working sword based on a double edged single fullered sword of late European styling (no forge-welding).
Blades will be from 24-32” long with simple guard/pommel.

This fast paced class will progress from bar to blade to functional tool in a short amount of time and with a large amount of information on historical European swords. Not for the faint of heart.
