The bottle opener is an excellent first project for the student who would like to try their hand at the ancient craft of blacksmithing. Students will be introduced to the blacksmith's techniques of flattening, bending over and on the anvil, hot-cutting, drawing-out to a taper, chamfering, bending in a fork and twisting. Students will leave class with their finished project, a hefty, unique bottle opener.
