2019 Barn Workshop – Make Roubo’s Shoulder Knife

In August we will continue the pursuit of Roubo’s tool kit, this time Making and Using Roubo’s Shoulder Knife.  I have no way to know exactly how prevalent was this tool’s use in ancient days, but I suspect it was used as much or even more than we use pocket knives today.  Each participant will fabricate a shoulder knife to fit their own torso, so its use can be both the most comfortable and the most effective. 

I do not yet have enough experience with the tool to be fully skilled in its use but we can practice together.

August 23-24, $250
