Aaron reviewed: One Day Bladesmithing Course - London Border

"Booked for a stag do. Owen was super helpful accommodating our shifting plans up till the date. Once we got there he was a fantastic teacher and helped everyone every step of the way. We all came away with a knife we are proud of and had a fantastic time. Cant recommend more."

Lou & Rob reviewed: One Day Bladesmithing Course - London Border

"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."

John Wood reviewed: Kitchen knife making course

"Just brilliant fun, this is all about doing it yourself. Hard work for those not used to handling tools. The grinding is the worst, such control required, so easy to go wrong, so good when you have done something to be proud of. Owen, thanks, you make sure that all of us do have a knife to be proud of. This was my second course at Bushfire Forge, and will not be the last. I used mine to carve the turkey!"

Peter Mace reviewed: Kitchen knife making course

"I really enjoyed this course. The forging of the initial shape of the blade is hard work-be prepared for 4 to 6 hours of hammering-and the grinding to shape takes a bit of concentration. But Owen gives enormous support and encouragement,and it clearly is hugely knowledgeable, and willing to share this. I've ended up with a knife I'm very proud of, and though Owen had to do bits of it for me (I was not to be trusted with some of the grinding!), I legitimately can claim it as my work, and achieving somethingI never thought I would/could"
