Event Title: Bushcraft Blacksmith Workshop

Date: July 13-14, 2024

Location: Russellville, KY


Join us in Russellville, Kentucky, for an intensive two-day Bushcraft Blacksmith Workshop designed for both novice and experienced enthusiasts eager to expand their survival skills through traditional blacksmithing techniques. This immersive workshop will be held on July 13th and 14th, 2024, and offers participants a unique opportunity to handcraft essential bushcraft tools under the guidance of seasoned blacksmiths.

Workshop Highlights:

  • Survival Knife Crafting: Forge your own high-quality survival knife. Learn about metal selection, shaping, tempering, and sharpening to create a durable and reliable knife that can handle any wilderness task.

  • Hatchet Making: Construct a robust hatchet perfect for chopping, carving, and other bushcraft needs. Participants will be taught the fundamentals of hatchet design and forging, ensuring the creation of a tool that is both functional and long-lasting.

  • Fire Striker Fabrication: Every bushcrafter knows the importance of fire. This session will focus on creating a fire striker guaranteed to produce sparks, even in adverse conditions. Understand the properties of different metals and techniques for striking to achieve the best results.

  • Cloak Pin Forging: Add a personal touch to your bushcraft gear by forging your own cloak pin. This smaller project will not only serve a practical purpose but also introduce finer blacksmithing skills like detail work and decorative finishing.
