Open to anyone in the area who is interested in developing video games. In order to have a little structure, we'll try to do a couple things each week:

Introduce new members. What have you worked on, game related or not? What do you want to work on next?

Discuss this week's conversation starter. Some article, video or game that we can dig into a little.

Members can present any games they're working on, for feedback or just to brag.

Of course, it's all very informal. The main goal is interesting conversation(s) about our passion.

Looking forward to it!

Saturday, November 24, 2018 at 12:00:00 PM The NEW HammerSpace Community Workshop 5200 E. 45th St., Kansas City, MO

**THIS IS A 2-DAY, 2-PART CLASS. FIRST PART IS ON SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 24TH, NOON-5:00PM. SECOND PART IS ON SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 25TH, FROM NOON UNTIL YOUR KNIFE IS COMPLETED.**

Learn the art of knife smithing as you create a beautiful damascus utility knife.

These are a long time favorite of our instructor. A beautiful and compact knife based on a skinning knife that makes itself useful on a daily basis.

The wood grain pattern of damascus style laminate steel is highlighted by your choice of a variety of exotic hard woods for the handle.

On day 1 we will be shaping the knife in our workshop. Learn to profile your knife, apply a bevel and create a blade. Apply intricate filework to the spine or add a hole for a lanyard. At the end of this class (or the beginning of class 2) we will heat treat our blades, and acid etch them to bring out the patterns in the steel.

On day 2 we will learn how to attach a handle with brass pins. We will shape and finish the handles and finish and polish and sharpen the blades.
