Learning to make obsidian knives with Alexander Hobiger
An exciting, educational day within the historic walls of the castle awaits you!
Course purpose: We will make 2 knives in this course. A knife with an obsidian blade and a copper age side knife with a blade insert made of flint and handle made of black poplar bark.
Course-content: In my course you will learn how it is possible to make an obsidian knife by yourself within a few hours using certain printing techniques. During the first 2-3 hours you will practice on the window glass. With increasing self-confidence we will then switch to obsidian. Towards the end of the course we will shank the finished blade into a handle and fix it with birch pitch.
