THE ULTIMATE LUMBERJACK PROJECT!! Youth Prereq: Under 16 must be Apprentice II or higher for this class. Ages 16+, no experience needed. Forge your own forest axe using high-strength 4330 steel. After forging, you will heat treat and grind it, and then we have an awesome treat for you -- the amazing Liam Hoffman is making us 24" axe handles! If you don't know Liam, he's a fellow Forged In Fire alum and he makes axes for a living. You can see the handle in the picture here, and the styling of the axe you will forge will be similar. This 4330 steel allow we have is crazy-tough! We actually used it to chop a chunk of mild steel in half with no edge damage (requires proper heat treat and grind .. which we will show you how to do!).
