In this 3 hour class, you'll begin with a horseshoe and end with your very own, handmade knife! Absolutely no prior experience is required and is suitable for ages 6+. No lifting required and little strength necessary, though hand-eye coordination always helps (READ DISCLAIMER AT BOTTOM PRIOR TO SCHEDULING).

The curriculum is designed to flow seamlessly and be tons of fun:
1) You'll begin the class by putting on safety gear and reviewing safety procedures.
2) You'll use traditional blacksmithing equipment (forges, hammers, and anvils) to forge a knife from a horseshoe.
3) Each step will be demonstrated and guidance will be provided throughout the class.

DISCLAIMER: Participants will be using hammers to move hot steel. This implies that your arm may become sore from hammering! Don't worry, we've never had a student fail to complete a project. If you have any disabilities that may prevent you from standing and hammering for long periods of time, please let me know prior to scheduling.
Other things to note: Open-toed shoes are not allowed. Avoid synthetic pants & shirts (best to have cotton jeans & a cotton top).

Your class may be led by either me (Max) or one of my instructors (Spiff, Jason, Matt, Randy, Sean, Tyler, Nikk or Jim).

I opened this experience with two goals in mind: First, to get you excited about blacksmithing by getting your hands dirty; Second, to facilitate the most fun you've ever had with your companions!

My passion for blacksmithing stems from a love of knife making, which I've been doing recreationally for over 18 years. Only in the last year did I make the decision to leave my career in technology to follow this calling full-time.

Her skal du være

You'll feel as if you were transported to an old-world blacksmith shop, though you'll remain in the heartland of Seattle's industrial district known as SoDo.

The shop is a 10 minute drive south from downtown Seattle.

Surprised my husband for our 23rd anniversary and we had a blast. Sean was a great instructor and took time to help each of us individually. Can’t wait to sign up for another class. We’re thinking about doing them all eventually!

Potentiall sell a wet stone and demonstrate how to sharpen at home. Might be worth it and then people could keep working on it from home instantly.

Overall the experience was pleasant and interesting. I went with a partner and we didn't really know what we were doing, which means a lot of trial and error lol, but our instructor was knowledgeable and patient, so we ended up with our very own pair of knives forged from part of a horseshoe.

This was a great new experience! We had a small group, which made the instruction feel more personalized and our instructor was GREAT! I would definitely do this again!

Was an awesome experience! Better than I had expected. Very fun and would definitely do one of the other forging experiences with them in the future.

I booked this class for my boyfriends birthday. We had a BLAST during knife making class! This was such a cool experience. If you are on the fence, do it. It was so special learning a new skill and the team at the Forge are so incredible. We will absolutely be back!
