In this class, students will forge a throwing tomahawk with a forge-welded high carbon cutting bit. Skills attendees can expect to learn include: tapering/drawing out, bending, drifting, forge welding, heat treatment, hardening and tempering, cutting with a chisel, basic forging, manipulating the cross-section of a bar, fire management when working in the coal forge and fitting the tomahawk to a handle. This class will also discuss parts of the anvil, blacksmith tools, and design elements as they apply to the blacksmith. At the end of the day, students will have the chance to do some target practice throwing their new tomahawk. All tools and materials included. $175/person. 706-308-7603, www.greenhowhandmade.com
