Topics that will be covered:
-Steel and the properties that make for a good knife.
-Designing blade and handle profiles for the intended use in the kitchen.
-Cutting and shaping steel using the stock removal method. (We will NOT be forging blades with a hammer, nor will the workshop be geared in any way towards swords, weapons, or fantasy type knives.)

-Handle material selection and stabilization of the wood using a vacuum chamber.
-Mounting and finishing handle scales and setting secure fasteners.
-Making a storage sheath, and final sharpening of the new blade.
