I was bought this for a Christmas present and I could not be happier.

Andy was fantastic throughout with providing knowledge and guidance but emphasising that the knife is mine to make, with his support. It was a safe, but laid back environment. I would definitely recommend this to anyone, and I would like to go back to do more!

Went with a friend and after a slight delay finding the forge (at the end of the road but it looked like it was No Access) had a fantastic time. Andy is a great teacher and doesn't rush you. It is really exciting to see the blade emerging from the steel after all the hammering. Even more fun is cleaning up on the grinders. The finished blade looks much better than i thought it would! I'm definitely intending to go back

I spent the day with Andy at Highfield forge and had an amazing time, Andy is very friendly and great communication, I recommend to anyone to give this a go.

I've been on a couple of Andy's courses now and have massively enjoyed every minute. Andy has the time, patience and knowledge to explain the techniques and process's of blacksmithing in a way that really allows you to learn and progress. Alongside this you will produce an individual knife you will always be proud of, I know I am. Highly recommend

I had a great day with Andy, could not believe how fast it went. I was very pleased with the quality of the knife I made with Andys expert help, I have come away with something unique to keep and use. Thoroughly recommend to anyone looking to do something completely different and very gratifying!

A great day for my 18 year old son.His birthday present turned out to be a fantastic triumph thanks to Andy’s paitience and tutorage. A proper charcoal forge (not gas) gave my son the full experience which even with the sweat and aching arm couldn’t wipe the broad grin from his face. Thanks Andy you really made his day

Had a fantastic day with Andy. He was very knowledgeable and answered any questions. This was hands on from the word go until the knife was completed.

He was great at letting me have a go, crack On and only stepped in when needed. My favourite birthday present ever! So good I’m currently trying to work out how to turn my shed into a smithy! I would recommend this to absolutely anyone who has an interest in blacksmithing.

Had a phenomenal day doing the axe making course that Andy offers. Andy was helpful, informative and most of all patient throughout the entire process. He made the entire process and enjoyable experience and was supportive throughout the whole time I was there. The most important thing I found was the emphasis Andy had on the enjoyment of the process and it very much came across in how engaging he was when making the axe. Thanks for an awesome day Andy!
