About the Course
Your chance to make your own hand forged knife. You will start with a piece of 1055 carbon steel and using anvil, hammer and a coal or gas forge, shape your knife. This is a completely forged knife, it is open to beginners but you will need stamina and patience. I will take you through the heat treatment step by step and how to use the belt grinders to shape and sharpen your blade before we finish it with a nice wood handle.
The course is on going so just ask about the date you have in mind.

I attended the full day knife making course last weekend and it was a great experience.
Something everyone should have a go at and both Andy & Dave are great teachers to go over the process start to finish.
