    Default Classes at Howard Clarks workshop .....

    Hey guys


    Howard Clark will be conducting 3 classes this fall.
    Here is a link to his webpage describing the classes.
    Classes at Morgan Valley Forge. | Omimi


    Class 1. Forging and grinding a Japanese style Tanto blade.
    This class starts on August 1, 2016, 4 students, and is filled.






    Class 2. Forging and grinding straight razors.
    September 12-16, 2016
    4 students. 2 openings left. This was filled but
    last minute cancellations for medical reasons occurred.
    I and Ron Hrstka ( Utopian ) will be attending this class.
    Howard has been making straight razors for many years.
    He recently conducted a straight razor making class at
    the New England School of metalwork.
    Here is a pic of some of the razors that were completed.
    This is your chance to receive some first class instruction
    on the forging and grinding of straight razors.
    Sign up now!

    Class 3. The "ites", metallurgy applied to blades.
    October 24-28, 2016, 4 students, class is filled.
    This is Howard Clarks strong suit.
    He knows this subject very well. Ferrite , Martensite, bainite, austentite,
    pearlite, etc. You will become knowledgeable with what
    these are and how they affect the blade.

    Wish the funds and work would allow it, Howard is one of those who has forgotten more than I will probably ever know. The making of the tanto would definitely fall into line with my intent of making my first short sword this fall.

    Argh.... I took a welding class last fall and already signed up for a machining class this fall. I would love to do this and need to add it to the list of things because this sounds incredible!
