This is a 2 day class concentrating on the particular techniques of forging a seax with Jacek Robótka of Jorgen Craft.

No prior experience is needed and the class will guide you through:
· Using a gas forge
· Forging the blade to shape

· Heat treating
· Blade finishing, sharpening, and edge testing
. Fitting a simple handle
