Two studios, three materials, and a week at Snow Farm! Rick and Norman will guide students through a creative and technical process with excellent results. Start by making a letter opener with a steel blade and wood handle. Then, bring your ideas for a knife shape and cut it from a sheet of steel; shape, harden, and temper its cutting edge; and mount it into a figured wood handle pinned with brass rivets. Polish the knife to a high shine and sharpen to a surgical cutting edge. Make a leather sheath to hold your knife snugly. If time allows, create new handles for ready-made knives.
