About the Course

These courses run for 4 hours on a half day Monday to Friday only from 9am to 1pm or 1pm to 5pm.

On this course you will be given 1075 steel. You will draw out the shape of the particular knife (which I have templates for) or you can bring your own design. You will use a grinder to remove the stock, shape and sharpen the blade, this will then be heated in the forge for 3 cycles to soften the metal. This knife has a leather wrap handle put on the tang (grip).

If you do not want to do stock removal then you can forge a rustic knife with a leather wrap handle.

If cancelled at anytime the £50 deposit is not refundable. The same terms apply to Gift Vouchers. So if you cancel on the day then the deposit is lost. Alternative bookings can be taken depending upon availability.

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

What's included in the price?

All materials and tools. Bring a packed lunch. Tea and coffee provided. Wear old clothes and stout footwear. A £50 deposit is required upon booking.
