We did the Bushcraft blade in a day course - really enjoyed it and would highly recommend it.

It was really interesting to experience a day in a working blacksmiths, learn the processes and techniques, and have a go for yourself.

Jake is really knowledgeable and a great tutor. Having small groups means you get plenty of time having a go, with Jake on hand to advise and guide every step of the way.

Thanks for a great day 👍🏼
