This class is limited to 8 students and there are no refunds or transfers for tuition.

One of the most important tools a medic can have in the field is a reliable blade.  In an austere environment, a sharp knife can be used in everything from camp survival skills to medical procedures and even self defense in an emergency.

Austin bladesmith James Brock will guide female students through a 2-day course on making a field blade that is multi-purpose,  and will be forged to fit the hand to be easily carried in a medic kit, day pack or supply pouch.

Prior blacksmith experience is not required for this course, and the course will be limited to 8 students to ensure a low student to teacher ratio with plenty of hands-on training in the art of bladesmithing.
