Class Description: The knife is one of the oldest human tools, and a simple blade is capable of great expression which cannot be achieved by any other means. In the Scandinavian tradition, carving knives have become highly functional works of art. In this introductory class we will use wood, metal, leather, and other materials to design knives and sheathes. We will discuss blade choice, materials, function and design. Each knife will be made to fit the builder’s hand, and will reflect their personal aesthetic. Blades, leather, and other materials will be provided.
