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.

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!

Max was wonderful! So knowledgeable and fun. He had no shortage of dad jokes (my favorite) and he seemed to to know his stuff. I went to Max’s horseshoe into a knife class, for my 4 yr anniversary with my wife and it was perfect! We loved it so much! Thank you for helping to make our 4 year wedding anniversary a great one, Max!

This was the coolest experience! Booked this as an anniversary gift for me and my fiancé. I had no idea what to expect so my arms and hands are killing me from that workout. But Spiff was such an awesome host! He literally did step by step instructions and it made it so easy. I can’t believe I actually made a knife. If your on the fence, go for it! Also, don’t be afraid to take your time. At first my fiancé thought there was no way he could make a knife in 3 hours but you can. But really, take your time and soak it all in. It’s so fun.
