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.

Andy Robinson reviewed: Bladesmithing experience day

"What a fantastic day! Throughout the day Steve was full of advice and tips, very patient while we made mistakes and then worked out how to fix them. Every step of the way telling us why we were doing something and what the outcome should be. Great experience and can thoroughly recommend it."

White Tiger Knives responded:

" Hi Andy Thank you very much for your review, I'm really glad that you enjoyed yourself so much. I hope you'll use your knife and get the very best out of it. Kind regards Steve"

Anna Hodgson reviewed: Bladesmithing experience day

"This was bought as a gift for my fiancé as he is into the Forged in Fire series! He hugely enjoyed himself, said it was exhausting and physical but really satisfying creating the knife. Steve is a friendly, relaxed and informative guy who ensured that Lee had a great day."

White Tiger Knives responded:

" Hi Anna I'm glad I didn't put Lee off knife making permanently, but I think he may look at the stock removal process as well now. I'm glad he enjoyed himself so much, it was a pleasure to host him in the workshop. Kind regards Steve"

Nick Clarke reviewed: 2 Day forged chef's knife course.

"I purchased this chef's knife making weekend course as a gift for my brother, and decided to come along too - which turned out to be a great decision. Steve is an excellent teacher with a wealth of knowledge, and a highly skilled craftsman. Spending a couple of days in his company, and using the often custom made equipment in his workshop we were able to produce a couple of completely unique knives that look great as well as being practical, and I am sure will serve us well for many years to come. Thanks Steve!"

White Tiger Knives responded:

" Hi Nick Thank you for your review. I'm always really pleased when students enjoy themselves so much on one of my courses. As ever the two days are full on, but the time always seems to fly by. The knives that you and your brother made are what I like to say, functional pieces of art. They certainly will serve you both very well in the kitchen. Kind regards Steve"

Paul reviewed: 2 Day forged chef's knife course.

"The two day knife making course was excellent. Steve covered all of the stages in forging and manufacturing a hand made bespoke knife. Steve was personable, knowledgable and informative and I would recommend him to anyone who is looking to either start or to advance their skills at knife making."

White Tiger Knives responded:

" Hi Paul Thank you for your very positive review, I'm really pleased that you enjoyed your two day chef's knife course with me. I know that the knife you made will serve you very well in the kitchen. Kind regards Steve"
