PAY THE WAY
Pay for a Veteran or First Responder to attend a class. Classes are approximately 35 hours of instruction in the forge. Students are provided a place to stay for 2 nights, all meals, snacks, and drinks. Students are provided all equipment and materials to craft their knives.
Blacksmithing requires a lot of supplies. Every student uses propane, tools, grinding belts, sand paper, steel, wood, glue, and tape. They are also provided special materials such as antlers, brass, and pewter depending on the design of their knife.
From files to our goal of getting a hydraulic press, equipment is needed. Donations of any amount for equipment are welcome. Give us a call if you have shop equipment you no longer use. Contact us if you have forging equipment you would like to donate.
TOGETHER WE ARE REFORGED
Veterans and First Responders are offered individual counseling and family counseling with licensed mental health professionals. Services are provided at no cost to the client.
