Bought it as a gift for my partner and it was a great experience. Everyone was incredibly friendly and helpful. They made me and my friend feel welcome to stay even though we did not do the course. It was a great day out and would highly recommend it to anyone.

Great experience. Very friendly and knowledgeable guys. They allowed you to complete the metalwork but were ready to help out if needed. We came away with some pretty decent knives and a great sense of achievement. My husband is addicted and will go back again for another project I'm sure.

This was a fantastic experience.... andy the course leader was very welcoming and great at explaining the process. As a complete beginer i was able to knock up a very respectable blade which looks good and actually works. Would definately reccommend this course for anybody for an experience a little different

Really enjoyable day. I'm a complete beginner, and had no trouble keeping up, thanks to the patient teaching. The course was easy to understand, enjoyable throughout and I didn't notice my brand new blisters until I was far enough along not to care.
By the end of the course I came away with my new knife, feeling like I'd learned a bit and very happy with the experience.


Axe making course

In-person course
Adrian Rees - - #17998

Had such a great time throughout the day, which went by so fast. Andy and Dave clearly love what they do and get their enthusiasm across really well, so that even mechanically declined idiots like me can take something home which gives a sense of true satisfaction at having made something functional as well as looking “very axe-y” :-) Great fun getting hot, sweaty and the full on sooty face. Have a go, you’ll love it!

I attended the full day knife making course last weekend and it was a great experience.
Something everyone should have a go at and both Andy & Dave are great teachers to go over the process start to finish.

Highly recommended

Great 2 days in the forge, shown the techniqes and let get one with it. Any point I was having some difficulty or making life harder than it needed to be he was there to help me get back on track. Really impressed with the work I was able to do under his guidance.

Sword making course

Just completed the course and it was epic. The fact you could taylor your sword to your own taste was brilliant and not just a standard template.

Just the best day ever.

Andy was the perfect host. Very welcoming and accommodating. His level of knowledge was excellent.

Still looking at the knife in disbelief that I made it, but the ache in my arm soon confirms it.

Everyone should have a go, I’ll be back to forge an axe.

Special mention to Dave as well, excellent tuition, very helpful and just the right amount of cheeky... ;)

Thanks again, lads. See you in December!

The course was fantastic. Andy was great at teaching the basic techniques as well as really clearly explaining as much technical detail as you'd like. The axe i came away with looks awesome, and it was a really great day all round. Ive done blacksmithing courses in the past and this one was by far the best.

One of the best Christmas presents I ever had. After watching forged in fire I wanted a go and whilst they make it look easy on tv it certainly isn’t! Luckily Andy was on hand to show me the way. 2 days later I have my very own seax. I will be back again and would recommend this to everyone. Some are pics and videos (Andy is great at this too) are on my Instagram @rhysids

Fantastic experience. Andy is knowledgeable, affable and patient. This was from start to finish a great day and Andy was a fantastic instructor explaining, demonstrating and then let me get stuck in. I will not only be recommending this to others but looking to go back again myself. Cheers Andy.
