James Crowell's Studio
Join Master Bladesmith Jim Crowell in this 3 day course held at his own forge, just a few miles outside of Mountain View.
“Vest Bowie” is a term used for a small Bowie knife with about a six inch blade. This class will address forging a suitable blade, rough grinding, cutting the shoulders and heat treating the blade. A guard and handle will be fitted and shaped as time permits. This is a great class as it deals with forging and grinding a clip point as well as cutting the shoulders for the guard.
Safety equipment that students should bring / wear:
A leather apron if you want. (Mandatory for Damascus class.)
Leather shoes or boots, mesh top foot wear does not fare well in the shop.
Dust mask / respirator
Leather palm work gloves
Ear protection if desired (mandatory for Damascus)
Jim does have some “spare” gloves, glasses and an apron that can be shared.
Materials Fee: $50
There is a maximum of 4 spots in this class
