· Heat treating

· Blade finishing, sharpening, and edge testing

. Fitting a simple handle

The course is open to all aged 18+ who can swing a hammer... I can cater for two or three people, please get in touch with any specific requirements.

Amazing, thorough, full-filled.

Jorgencraft actually provided me with a bespoke weekend 1on1 to make a personalised item of a cut throat razor and sheath. During this time I was taught metalwork, forging, leather work and used dozens of tools.

The workshop has every tool known to man and the teacher is able to make and teach anything under the sun from clothing to weaponry.

Utterly amazing and surpassed my expectations....

Thank you so much :)

Response from Jorgen Craft:

Thank you very much for your feedback. We are glad you have enjoyed the class with is.

Jakob was a very good student with good manual skills. It was great to run a class with a bespoke personalised item.

Thank you for choosing Jorgen Craft.
