items to you will make over the two days - eg, a bearded axe, a full handle, and a tomahawk. You will learn to make using a traditional blacksmith's forge for the tomahawk and bearded axe. You will learn to forge weld the tomahawk and bearded axe.The smithing process is quite fine and not as heavy handed as regular blacksmithing. It is more akin to jewellery making techniques.

A great introduction to bladesmithing. Two full and enjoyable days spent forging a knife and making a sheath.
Stuart has a great sense of humour and a passion for his craft. Cheers pal.
Book a course and you won't be disappointed.


What a day - hands on and great to see the end product from a piece of metal at the start. Stewart is very patient and encouraging. Highly recommended.


A grand day out - what an experience - really enjoyed the hammering lol. Great teacher. Highly recommended.


Thoroughly enjoyed the experience - a challenge at first but Stuart is an excellent tutor - very patient and attentive. Highly recommended.


Brilliant introduction to the world of bladesmithing - did not realise how much work was involved - but a great hands on experience.


Wow - a blade from a blank form. It is great to see it transforming. Very enjoyable. Highly recommended.


Great course - Stuart has a lot of knowledge and is patient and empowering. A knife to take away. Brilliant.


Forged a knife and within a day a finished item. Great tutor with bags of patience. Highly recommended.


Great tutor with patience but a wealth of knowledge. Able to work at my own pace and take home a finished knife at the end of the day. Recommended.
