"Smi'da einn ox!" - Let's forge an axe!

Come and forge your own Viking Bearded Axe! We will use high carbon steel and some traditional methods to drift and forge these axes. We will also add handles so you can attack some trees with your awesome axe.

It is suggested that you first complete the beginner's course before attending this one as we will rely on some of the techniques we cover in the beginner's course.

 

As always lunch is included plus a whole lot of fun.
