TC Notes-Texarkana College Carries on the Trade of Bladesmithing

 Bladesmithing is the art of making knives, blades, swords and daggers using fire, heat, hammers, and other tools. Though this technique began several thousands of years ago, the Bill Moran School of Bladesmithing in Washington, Arkansas, through Texarkana College, is one of the few places in the world where people can still train in the art of making knives.
“There is a sort of romance to the art of forging,” said B.R. Hughes, former Dean of Students at Texarkana College and a founder of the American Bladesmith Society (ABS).
Through an established program, bladesmiths at the Bill Moran School of Bladesmithing are certified as Journeyman and Master Bladesmithing levels. Over the years, the school has drawn students from Australia, England, France, and South Africa, as well as from most of the states in the U.S. The instructors of the course include world-class bladesmiths sanctioned by the ABS.
