Hatchets: Traditionally Constructed Edge-Tools


Viewed through modern eyes, it may be assumed that work methods of former times were adopted for want of any other choice. In this course we will approach edge tool construction using pre-industrial techniques. Particular emphasis will be placed on understanding the techniques pre-industrial artisans chose and refined over many generations. Beginning with a tomahawk on day one and a jointer’s hatchet the following days, students will focus on forging, welding, steeling and heat treating procedures. Limited to 6 students.
