I had a fantastic time with Tom at Longdog Smithy making a Sgian-dubh.
The course was completely hands-on and practical, and it was great to experience the end to end process from sketch to finished item.
Tom was very patient and explained the process clearly. He's clearly very experienced and has a great eye for detail at all stages.
An excellent day all round in which I learnt a huge amount and left with a beautiful knife.
Thanks Tom!

Fantastic day with Tom at Longdog smithy. We both learnt masses and forged a completed knife each, Tom was a great tutor and good fun and we have both exceeded our expectations by miles. Off home to make sheaths for our individual and treasured creations. Couldn't recommended it enough, unforgettable day.
Thank you Tom !

My son and I attended the Longdog Smithy course recently. Tom was gracious, welcoming, helped us feel at ease immediately. We chose what we wanted to make, he offered advice then walked us through the day - instructing and encouraging with the knowledge and experience he evidently has. He even helped us record the experience on camera!
We loved it. People are amazed at the raw beauty of the knives we crafted out of a length of plain old metal bar. Thank you, Tom!

I bought a day at Longdog Smithy for my partner's birthday present, thinking I would go along for the ride, but with Tom's patient encouragement I got right into it and by the end of the day I'd made a beautiful cook's knife that I'm hugely proud of - and my other half is thrilled with the bowie knife he made too. I can't believe we accomplished so much in a day.

A fantastic experience in every respect. Can't recommend highly enough.

Just spent a very rewarding 2 days at Tom's forge. I asked him to teach me as many blacksmithing techniques as would fit in the time and I could cram into my brain. Tom provided clear instructions, demonstrated each technique, and provided feedback and tips as needed. I learnt so much but never felt rushed or pressured, and have left with a great range of finished items. This course delivered exactly what I wanted. Thanks Tom.

I cannot sum up how great Tom at Longdog Smithy is. His knowledge and patience are endless: my wife and I had a blast, making a knife and a scrolled trellis. Can’t wait to book another session! Very highly recommended and excellent value for money

Tom was an excellent teacher, with the ability to share his knowledge and enthusiasm in a fun and informative way. We had a great day, learning the basics of blacksmithing, leaving with objects we’d actually made ourselves. Brilliant!

My wife and I learnt to do blacksmithing with Tom and made a billhook. It was a brilliant experience and I can't recommend it highly enough. We might come back and make some more tools. We love the billhook!
