Para cord handle rustic knife course

I would urge anyone even remotely interested is forging, knife making or just general metal working to take this course.

Andy and Dave are fantastic teachers with very clear, concise, calm and informative instructions and happy to help with any questions and problems you may have no matter how good, or not, you are.

I can’t wait to go back there for round 2. Cheers lads 👍

What a morning.

I had been given this for my birthday and couldn’t wait.

Andy and Dave where great instructors. They had patience to explain everything and show you twice if you wasn’t sure.

Definitely coming back.

Wood handle rustic knife course

This course was fantastic. I enjoyed every minute. Andy was great. Very friendly atmosphere. Instruction was clear and supervision was at just the right level. Andy allowed me to work independently and gave a true bladesmithing experience and avoided any over explanation or prolonged demonstration. This was truly hands on! Perfect experience!

Absolutely fantastic!! Andy was an awesome instructor. Clear instruction and guidance but didn't hover over you and let you get stuck in. Genuinely nice guys. I will be coming again 😁 thank you. Love my knife 👍

Sword making course (Course inactive)

My wife bought me the 3 day sword course for my 50th and it was great! Andy was very informative and even though I've been in metalworking for most of my life I still learned a lot. Haven't stopped admiring my sword since I got back but be warned, after the course you will want to get your own forge, anvil and belt grinder to practise your new skills! My wife wasn't too happy with that bit.

Did the axe making course here with some friends.

Friendly welcome and great, clear explanations of how to make the axe. Just the right amount of 'mick' taken whenever we inevitably screwed up.

Thoroughly recommended.

No past experience with metal work or forging. Andy put us all at ease and made the day a fantastic memorable experience even with a trophy (knife) to bring home as well. I would definitely do again and definitely recommend it.

Cheers Andy

Excellent four hour course with Andy, excellent tuition and demonstration, very experienced and knowledgeable, well worthwhile. If you are intending to book a course it’s advisable to take a drink with you.

Had a brilliant time. Andy and Dave helped out and gave advice with their obvious years of knowledge. Came away with a beautiful knife and a massive smile on mine and my son's faces'. Would recommend this to anyone.

Sword making course (Course inactive)

Andy was a great teacher...allowed you to work at your own pace; there when you needed help but otherwise just stood back and let you get on with it. Friendly and pleasant guy.
Highly recommend this to anyone!

Wood handle rustic knife course

I attended the full day knife forging course a couple of weeks ago and couldn't recommend it enough. Andy is a great teacher and all round nice chap, he gives clear and insightful instruction without loading you with technical detail and guides you through all elements from start to finish. At the end of the day I walked away with a knife I was incredibly proud of.

Would definitely recommend to others.

Axe making course

The axe making course was a great experience, the guys at the forge were friendly and made it easy to understand what to do. They explained things clearly and made sure you knew how to stay safe in the forge. They let you get on with it but always kept an eye on you and only intervened if things were going a bit wrong to make sure you had something to take home at the end of the day. Would definitely recommend to anyone.

I only have good things to say about this course. If you're in to metal working then I highly recommend attending. Andy was superb, making the day interesting and extremely fun. A completely genuine lad with a clear passion for his craft. I enjoyed it immensely and will for sure be heading back to Highfield Forge for another class. Cheers for the day Andy. I love my knife!

I did the full day knife making course and came away at the end of the day with a finished knife. It was a great day in a relaxed atmosphere, Andy and Dave demonstrated the techniques and allowed me to get a great hands on experience. I felt the balance between letting me do the job and their guided input was spot on. I was also very impressed wth their attitude toward safety. Definately recomend this for anyone who wants to get their hands dirty and have a go.
