About This Class

A dull knife doesn't cut well.  It requires more force and is more dangerous.  While there are gadgets that can put some sort of edge on a knife, better results can be obtained by hand sharpening.

This class will go into the different grinds and what each is best suited for, and will demonstrate how to take a knife to razor sharpness with just a few tools.

Blacksmith, woodworker, all-around crafter

I am driven by a need to create.  This has lead me down some interesting roads.  

I know a bit about woodwork, metal work, leather, casting, and several other disciplines.  I also enjoy passing along what I know to others.

Life is a continual path of improvement.
