PREREQ: Youth - MUST BE APPRENTICE II OR HIGHER Adult - Must have completed two mild steel projects Forge the iconic Bowie knife with an 8-9" blade or a dagger!!! It doesn't get any more American than the Bowie, or more tactical than the dagger. Forge a historically accurate Bowie or dagger with high carbon steel, grind it, file it, and heat treat it. We don't often include the handle and guard as part of the Bowie knife class, but in this case we will, BUT we need to follow consistent parameters for the handle and guard to complete the project in three days. You may use this knife in the ABS THROAT AND TIP SHEATH class in July 2021.
