Click here for the History of Cutting Tools Event information
Learn about our most important tool and how it has been made throughout time. Learn how the ancient Calusa of Florida made axes that would fell a tree…from a sea snail shell! Learn how to knap an arrowhead and how man has made knives from meteorites for thousands of years. Learn about what sharp really is and about the six year apprenticeship to learn how to sharpen a Samurai sword. In the full hands-on version you make a sea shell knife, a stone arrowhead, and forge 2,000 degree red hot steel into a blade on the anvil! You even get to keep the tools you make!
