Blade making master & forging artist from West Seattle now offers classes locally

West Seattle expert knife maker, iron craftsman, and blacksmith, David Lisch has recently doubled the size of his already cavernous workshop in that large yellow wooden building under the West Seattle Bridge that was once the Alaska Copper and Brass warehouse. The extra space is set up as a classroom and authentic workshop. He is now offering classes in blade making. Students taking his two to three day weekend classs will walk away with their own handmade finished knife.

Since our last article on Lisch, he has won numerous awards including an international blade competition in Atlanta earlier this year.

To sign up for one of the classes, contact David at: or (206) 919-5431.
