Ledford Works

Make your own custom knife with Forged in Fire Finalist Caleb Ledford at Ledford Works!

In approximately 4 hours, students will learn to create a beautiful knife out of a railroad spike. In this completely hands-on class, you will be taught how to control & heat metal in the forge then how to properly hold the metal while forging it with a hammer. This will be followed by instructions ​on grinding and beveling your blade before heat treating.

For students wanting to try something more challenging, they offer a 2-day and 4-day class tailored to your desires and skill level.

Caleb Ledford was a contestant on Season 7, Forged in Fire on The History Channel and made it to the final round of competition!
