Had a fantastic day with Connor, he couldn't have been more helpful. I'm over the moon with both the day and the knife I took home. This is a fantastic experience for anyone who is interested in the craft or enjoys Forged in Fire or Alec Steele!

Excellent day, Connor was patient and full of information on techniques both modern and historical. Great day had by both my brother in law and myself, plus we both made knives which are functional and unique.

Had a great day in the forge with Connor, I went in not knowing what to expect and to learn as much as I could and it didn't disappoint! I came home with a brilliant knife and a new found love of the process, Connor is a great teacher and is very knowledgeable about everything and make you feel at ease soon as you arrive! Would definitely recommend this course.

My partner had a cracking day forging his own knife. The blade turned out amazing and Connor was very knowledgeable and patient. I would definitely recommend his classes for people in the future.

What a fantastic experience, I couldn’t think of a better way to bond with my two boys! Playing with fire and making a knife (safely 😊)
Connor was a great, great teacher, a testament to his fantastic ability.
What a fabulous memory day made with my children, and they now have something that they can show their children to say, “Look what I made with my Dad”
Will definitely be returning when my youngest one is of the right age.
5 star ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️⭐️⭐️ Day

The course was a fascinating hands-on insight into using a coal-fire forge, drawing out the shape and then putting on a handle and grinding the edge.

It is a working forge, with all the tools you would require. Only a few minutes from the Elsecar heritage centre.

It's a long day, expect to be busy throughout, but the experience was excellent. I would highly recommend it.
