Since the dawn of human civilization, mankind has made weapons. What began with sharpening sticks and pounding stone has evolved into a highly complex skill requiring the taming of fire and steel. - Forged in Fire
Do you have what it takes to tame fire and steel? Hone your skills in the advanced metalworking class, Bladesmithing.
Do you have the Metal Working Merit Badge and did you absolutely love earning it? Is it time to move to the next level in SR2's 1890 Blacksmith Shop.
Scouts will forge their own railroad spike knife, by learning how to forge, anneal, & heat treat steel to craft a fully functional knife.
Class is at SR2 - Camp 9 Blacksmith Shop. Starts at 9AM sharp. Class ends at 4PM. Saturday September 2, 2023. No meals will be provided.
