April 16-22, 2018 – Advanced Katana Forging Course

This is a new offering in our line-up of classes for 2018. We’ve had many requests for a class covering the forging of a katana length blade. This is an opportunity open to those who have already completed the Basic Forging Course or who already have mastered the fundamentals of bladesmithing.

This will be a seven day course due to the extra work involved in the forging and shaping of a blade of this length.

Students of this class will forge-weld a billet of composite cable with a double-twisted cables running along what will become the cutting edge and straighter grain cables along the back. A blade of katana length (24+ inches) will then be forged to shape with hand hammers.


The price of the course is $2400 and is limited to four students per session. A deposit of $800 is requested, refundable up to 90 days before the session begins.

0 spaces remaining in this session.

Sorry, this class is FULL!
