Hand Forged Axe Class by the Bavarian Blacksmith Experience

This 3-hour forging class will cover the basics of forging a bearded-style tomahawk axe. You will have the opportunity to forge like a viking and then throw like one too! Learn the punch and drift method for forging an axe eye, the separation of the axe mass, and its shape. You will also be introduced to forging on a COAL Ironworks 12-ton press as well as hand-hammering.

Please bring water and wear closed toed shoes.

*The class includes a handle and grinding.*
