This is a 1 day class open to only three students per class, with openings available on Saturdays as scheduling permits. Students will forge a tomahawk from a solid bar of steel, shape the handle, learn the heat treating proceduces and forging techniques including grinding and filing. While there is no set age requirements, we recommend the class for ages 16 and over (email us regarding younger students, we just want to make sure it's worth our time and your money) and is limited to 2 students per class and scheduling is done on a first come, first serve basis. All materials, including steel, abrassives and fuels needed to complete the projects will be provided along with needed safety gear. We will be using a combination of coal and gas forges during classes. Belt grinders, air tools, abrasive saws and other power equipment may also be used by students. All classes are held in our 0indoor facility, rain, snow or shine. Attendees must wear closed toe shoes, preferably work boots and are encouraged to bring their own tools such as hammers or tongs if they have them but this is not required. Classes are held at 2529 Roundtop Road, Middletown PA 17057.


Covid-19: We take safety very seriously in the forge. This last year due to state mandated lockdowns we were required to shutter our doors for months at a time. Going forward our policy is as follows: We have always limited class spaces to increase the amount of attention each student recieves in order to deliver the quality of instruction we believe you deserve. Classes are limited to 3 people in each class and we request that if you are experiencing any symptoms or signs of Covid or have a positive test that you reschedule for a future date out of respect for the others who will be attending with you. We intend to have dates through the first quarter of 2022 online shortly.

We do not offer refunds for classes due to the advanced scheduling, limited spots available and lead time required to order materials and consumables for each student; however, we run classes year round and will gladly work with you to find a different class to better suit your schedule.
