About the Course

Calling all fans of Forged in Fire, come down to the forge and make your own knife or axe. We start off by drawing and planning your knife/axe, then move on to the magic of drawing out your design from an innocuous piece of metal.

Once you’re happy with the knife/axe shape and design we start to construct the handle and any other decorative touches you want added. By the end of the course you will take home a beautiful and functional piece of art. If you’re daring enough we also offer a Forged in Fire testing session, and video for an additional fee.

This is a 2 day course costing £300.
Extra special damascus courses also available.

If booking with a CraftCourses voucher for part or all of the course fee, please fill in the contact form above. Your voucher code must be provided at the point of booking.
