Made A Knife


Recommended Posts

I’ve been making knives for a bit (as one might have guessed). Had a chance recently to take a class with Joe Seabolt and Joe McGee to make an early American (or Woodbury style) knife, my first of the style with a cross guard. It was a lot of fun and I learned a lot. If anyone is near Cincinnati, check out the blacksmith school in Goshen, OH. They’ve got some great classes going.

I did this while I was at the Goshen School and used a propane forge and a good sized double horn anvil (I didn’t notice the brand). At home I use both a propane and coal forge. My personal anvil is a Hay Budden and, being a Hooiser, I think it’s especially cool because it was made for the Raola/Van Camp Hardware store in Indianapolis and is marked as such. image.thumb.jpeg.d8ac5af529d161d58ecd99be1a5a9fe2.jpeg
