Hammer In / Zombie Killing Comp 13th November 2021

Come kill some Zombies!

To celebrate that we survived 2021, we guys here at Drakon Forge Smithy will be hosting a Hammer-In. There will be some advanced smithing displays by experienced smiths to help you take your smithing to the next level. An axe-throwing stall where you can show off your Viking prowess. And of course our yearly Zombie Killing Competition!

 

Rules are the same as previous years:

1. You have to have designed and forged your weapon yourself.

2. You have to wield your own weapon.

3. No motorised, explosive or spring-loaded weapons allowed.

 

Your weapon's performance will be judged on destructive power, wield ability, and sturdiness. (By a randomly chosen set of judges :)

Looking forward to killing some zombie pumpkins with you all, learn some new techniques and above all have some FUN.

If you have attended some of our courses and have been smithing on your own, please bring some of your projects for show and tell!

We will provide fire and some side dishes, so bring your own meat and drink.

See you there!

"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.

Here is a preview of what we will be doing in the course:
