Blacksmithing & Toolmaking

Swedish Kniv Traditions with Ramon Persson

Course Overview

North House is pleased to welcome Swedish craft consultant and Santerglanten Folk School instructor, Ramon Persson to campus as a featured International Guest Instructor. Students in this course will have a thorough, hands-on experience exploring the techniques and historical traditions of Swedish knifemakers. This course will focus on work knives in the Saami-style, suitable for a variety of practical uses. The knives will be crafted using hand-forged Swedish blades assembled with one piece of birch wood for the handle. Leather work is the final skill that students explore as each knifemaker makes a custom sheath in the traditional method using a single piece of wood with a leather wrap-around for hanging from the belt. As is the traditional method, there is no glue used in the making of the sheath or knife.
