Steve Pellegrino  - Limit 14 guests

September 20-22 2019

East Durham NY 12423

Join us for a weekend exploring knife making with one of Jimmy’s former SVA students Steve Pellegrino. Steve is a designer and bladesmith working out of the Philadelphia area. He takes plain bars of steel and turns them into functional sculpture that transcend the everyday tool you have come to know in your kitchen, garage or even your pocket. His blades are made completely by hand, built to last generations, not to simply dull and rust in a drawer. Steve will introduce us to his style of bladesmithing and take us through all of the techniques and materials to create a beautiful and exceptional tool. Learn more about Steve through the link below. He also shares his work on youtube, enjoy!
