In this knife making course you will make a rustic style knife over four hours out of 1055 carbon steel. I will take you through the forging process step by step (you will be doing all of the hammer work so have your weetabix). You will learn how the heat treatment is done, from the normalisation to tempering and how to sharpen your blade on the belt grinder This is a 1 on 1 course so you get my undivided attention and I will answer any questions you may have. There is a £40 none refundable deposit to book your course with the balance payable on the day. To book email me via the contact form above with the month you would like book in and I will send you a list of times and dates available. I have put a picture of a simple knife I have made but you are welcome to do your own design. You must be 18 or older to do this course.
What's included in the price?
You will be provided with a piece of 1055 carbon steel all the tools you will need, plus all the protective equipment, eg. gloves, glasses and leather apron, but please dress in old clothes.
