Excellent day. Owen was a great tutor and kept a sharp eye on progress, helping out where needed.
Everyone completed their knife and took it home.
All tools and safety equipment was provided, small group size (7 on our day) meant we could all see the demo and get the required amount of attention.
Owen is a master craftsman, he showed us some stunning examples of his work. The detail he can get on a blade is amazing.
I would recommend this class to anyone.
