"Very good experience and very informative. Bean knew his stuff and was very helpful. This is a good test for your metal working skills, using traditional methods. Only niggle was no refreshments. Luckily I was staying on site, so on the breaks I was able to get something to drink. "
"I would highly recommend doing the 2-Day Knife Forging Course at Old Pound Smithy, they were so friendly and welcoming. Bean is an excellent teacher, he spoke clearly about each stage of the process when forging my knife and is a very experienced and skilled blacksmith. He was patient and worked hard to ensure I created a knife that I was happy with. It was very satisfying to forge metal, to learn about the process of blacksmithing and to create something so unique.

" Thanks so much Kelly. The knife you made was absolutely stunning. You must be really proud of your achievement!"
