Veteran Blacksmith Workshop! (Women’s Class) – 51 Bravo Custom Knives – Wayland Michigan

March 12, 2022 @ 9:00 am - 3:00 pm EST

Veteran Blacksmith Workshop! (Women's Class) - 51 Bravo Custom Knives - Wayland Michigan
Learn how to make your own custom knife with 51 Bravo Custom Knives!


We are excited to be offering this unique opportunity again this year!

“In a one-day class you can learn about bladesmithing in a well equipped forge complete with a hydraulic press and power hammer. You can try your hand at basic forging techiniques, grinding, installing handles and sharpening. At the end of the day you will leave with your very own 51 Bravo custom knife that you made with your own two hands!”

The instructor and owner, Shawn Moulenbelt, is a Veteran himself and a phenomenal teacher. He’ll meet you where you’re at when it comes to your comfort level in a shop and he’ll walk you through the process of making your own knife from start to finish.

Lunch will be provided however, feel free to bring snacks!

***Be sure to add your name to the waitlist if tickets are sold out for this event. We will be offering a few more iterations of this workshop this year and we’ll make sure you know when we post more classes!



I understand that I have the responsibility to:

* Notify the event organizer as soon as possible if I need to cancel my reservation for this event so that my reservation may be opened up to a Veteran on the waitlist.

* “NO-SHOWING” for an event I am registered for will cancel out any future reservations I have with the Veterans Rising organization and may suspend my right to sign up for future events.

* If an emergency arises, I will contact the event organizer as soon as I am able.


This event is brought to our Michigan Veterans through a Michigan Veterans Affairs Agency grant in partnership with Kent County Veteran Services and Veterans Rising, LLC.
