Maker's bio

I have had a love affair with knives for a very long time, I have owned and used a multitude of knives ever since I was a small boy. I made my first knife while at school for my ‘O’ level metalwork project. I have been making knives on a semi professional basis since about 2000, and professional since early 2015. I forge my blades as well as stock removal, all of the knives I make are made in my own workshop, no one else is involved at any time in the production of one of my knives.

Steve B reviewed: 2 Day forged chef's knife course.

"Great course, brilliant instructor, Steve gave lots of confidence and experience to ensure that the two day course left me with a beautiful chefs knife that was sharp and useable for years to come. Don't hesitate, book your course for a custom made knife to cherish, lots of fun!!"

White Tiger Knives responded:

"Hi Steve Thank you very much for your review. It was a great two days and the Honesuki that you made turned out beautifully. As you've said the edge on it is so sharp. I'm sure that it will give you a life time of service. Kind regards Steve"

Andy Upson reviewed: Bladesmithing experience day

"Great welcome by a great bloke. Made to feel very comfortable. Workshop is a safe and easy place to work in. We did the one day knife making course. Loads of hands on work by us. Very happy and proud of the final product. Did I mention Steve is a top bloke. Thanks for a great day."

Steve reviewed: Bladesmithing experience day

"What an amazing day, did the 1 day bladesmithing course with my son, we both had a great day, Steve is an amazing teacher and has a great attention to detail, he wants you to have a blade you will be proud of and he definitely achieved that with us, my son and I have several knives in our collections but there is something special about a knife you make yourself, well with a lot of help and guidance from a master bladesmith, we would highly recommend going."

White Tiger Knives responded:

"Hi Steve Thank you very much for your review. It was a pleasure to host you and your son on the one day course with me. The blades that you made were rather special. I hope to meet you and Brian again at the Military Odyssey in August if you're both not too busy. Kind regards Steve Nowacki White Tiger Knives"

"Evening Brad Thank you very much for your review. It's very gratifying to help students experience the craft of bladesmithing in any way I can. I'm really pleased that you enjoyed your time in the shop with me and even happier that you love the man blade that you created. Kind regards Steve"
