New Knifemaking Workshop for CNC

  On November 6-9, Tormach is offering something we think is absolutely unique—a specialty workshop taught by knifemaking experts John and Erik of Grimsmo Knives. Called “CNC for Knifemakers,” the 3.5 day class will be held in the Tormach workshop in Madison, Wisconsin.  Open to the first ten registrants, students will gain practical experience in CNC programming, machine control, and machining as they build The Tor, a fixed blade hunting knife designed specifically for the class (Tor is short for Tormach). Known for their popular “Knifemaking Tuesday” series on YouTube, John and Erik have been video documenting their journey making custom knives using a Tormach PCNC 1100. Students will leave the class with CNC techniques geared towards the craft of making high-end custom knives.
