Christian reviewed: Knife making and bladesmith classes: hand forged viking knife one day workshop

"I had such a great time in the course and came away with a Viking knife that I’m genuinely proud of. I particularly enjoyed working between the forge and hammering on the anvil. Spencer was a brilliant instructor, he gave us a lot of independence but was still accessible for opinions and guidance. He was quick to tell me what I was doing right and constructive when explaining an error. I absolutely recommend to anyone interested. "

Anvil Forge responded:

" Hi Christian thanks for your comments , I will pass on the review to Spencer. I know he enjoys working with you all and he told me at the end of the day that he enjoyed the session as well. What is also really good is the feedback that we are doing it right for you guys ( trainees) and achieving the right mix of giving you the freedom but still keeping a close eye on you when needed . best wishes John"

Rhys reviewed: Hand forged viking knife one day workshop

"I would like to thank John and his team for an amazing experience, if you are unsure of what to expect, know that the team will really make you feel welcome and do all they can to help and instruct you to create a piece of work you are proud of. As someone who is not always at ease around new people, especially as I was on my own, they were really friendly, warm, funny and full of fascinating information about the work they do daily, igniting a real passion for me and I can’t wait to come back and learn more about this craft. Thank you and I look forward to seeing you again soon! "

Duncan R. reviewed: Hand forged viking knife one day workshop

"I had an amazing day with the team, living up to expectations and more. The day was run by Aiden and Spencer who were both excellent instructors and good fun to work with. I had Spencer helping me most of the day who was 10/10 and made the whole experience better - thank you for sharing your knowledge and some of your own work too. I would strongly recommend this to anyone and will be giving this a go myself in the coming months too. Thank you all! "
