Response from White Tiger Knives:

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

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.

Excellent day's knife making!

Steve was a perfect host and instructor. Very patient with my errors (like constantly missing the knife when hammering it on the anvil, or grinding it unevenly), which he then corrected for me! Happy to explain what we were doing and why. Took us through the process to time, and helped us produce wonderful looking knives at the end of it. Can't recommend this course enough, a really good day.

Response from White Tiger Knives:

Hi Malc

I'm really glad that you enjoyed yourself so much, it was a blast and you did make a rather special knife. I know that it will serve you well whenever you use it.

Kind regards

Hi Cameron

Thank you very much for your kind words, I'm really happy that you enjoyed your two days in the shop with me so much. The knife that you created really is something a little special and will always be a talking point. Not only that I know that it will serve you well in the kitchen as well and like we discussed these tools really are functional pieces of art. I look forward to our next instalment in the shop and I'm getting my legal team to prepare a disclaimer just in case you decide to disappear down the knifemaking rabbit hole.

Kind regards

Made an absolutely stunning knife with Steve's support. Lovely manner, very patient and positive - considering he's an ex-grafter ;)
Fab workshop in his gorgeous garden. Thanks so much :D

Response from White Tiger Knives:

Hi Rikki

Thank you very much for your kind review and for being such a capable student. You worked really hard to make and accomplish all of the required stages to complete your knife in the time that's available to us. I hope you love and are using your bespoke chef's lady blade in your kitchen.
I will pass your comments about our garden onto my wife, she'll be very pleased.

Kind regards

A fantastic day!
Really enjoyed everything about it from start to finish. Steve is a fantastic knowledgeable teacher who knows his subject inside out. I can't believe the knife I ended up with.
The course is worth every penny.
Book now you will not regret it!

Response from White Tiger Knives:

Hi Ian

Thank you very much for your review, I am very pleased that you enjoyed your day so much and that you are so happy with the knife that you created. It's surprising how long a process it actually is and what you can create from that original lump of steel. As I said on the day, slow is steady, steady is smooth and smooth is fast. Thank you once again.

Kind regards

Hi Theo

Thank you very much for your review and I'm really glad that you enjoyed your day so much with me. Regardless of your skill set, with a little patience and a guiding hand you were more that up for the task in creating your own forged knife. It would be a pleasure to welcome you and your girlfriend into the shop at some point in the future on the two day Chef's knife course.

Kind regards

Response from White Tiger Knives:

Hi Ben

I'm very pleased that you enjoyed your two days in the shop so much. I have to agree that the knife you made did look rather special especially with that Cocobolo handle and with the edge we gave her I'm sure will allow your knife to perform any task you require in the kitchen. Thank you for wanting to take a course with me and enjoy your new creation.

Kind regards

I had the absolutely pleasure of spending the day with Steve and making a knife under his expert tutoring.
Steve has an encyclopaedic knowledge of bladesmithing and is a thoroughly good chap to boot. The day was both exhilarating and fun but also a rich grounding in the basics of forging a knife.
I would heartily and without reservation recommend this course to anyone!

Response from White Tiger Knives:

Hi Chris

Thank you very much for your kind words. I'm really pleased that you enjoyed your day so much. It was full on, but enjoyable and you made a cracking man blade. Remember I don't accept any responsibility if you've been bitten by the knife making bug.

Kind regards

Hi Chris

It was a fun packed and full on day I'm glad I didn't let the pressure show. I will need your address though to send you the bill from my psychiatrist. Until our next adventure in the shop remember, "you're only as sharp as your knife."

Response from White Tiger Knives:

Hi Dafydd

Thank you very much for your review. It shows basically how the two days unfold and some of the processes involved in the making of the chef's knife. As you stated I do undertake certain production processes during the day and that is only because of the time limitations we face on the course days. As I say on day one, our biggest enemy is time and I want every student to go home with the best possible knife they can make in the time available. You have given me some food for thought though regards the quenching process.

Incredibly fun, insightful and detailed presentation. Steve is a career metal worker with true passion for the craft of bladesmithing. Be fussy, ask questions, or just chill and enjoy the ride. Either way, you'll end up with the knife of your dreams. Day 1 metal. Day 2 wood. In between go out for a beer, food and stay local, plenty of choice.
Rugged beauty. Cheers mate. Tom & Graeme

Response from White Tiger Knives:

Hi Tom

Thank you for this great review. It's always hard to gauge how people view their day and what they're able to make while I'm demonstrating/helping them in the shop, but I think you put it rather succinctly. I'm very glad that you both enjoyed your two days with me so much.

I was put in touch with Steve as I needed assistance with a project I was undertaking. He was so helpful and spent so much time helping me I decided to take one of his courses . The experience was excellent...his knowledge of knife-making and the processes involved are encyclopaedic, moreover, the way in which he explains things and if necessary demonstrates them made the day a pleasure. I ended it with a knife I couldn't be more proud of.
Thanks Steve!!

Response from White Tiger Knives:

Hi Peter

It was great to get to meet you in person rather than chatting on the phone. It was a full on, but productive day and the knives that you and Chris made were excellent. It was a pleasure to have you in the shop. Hopefully see you at some point in the not to distant future.

Just finished my knife making day with Stephen! Such a fantastic experience, absolutely blown away by the knife I made. Stephen's knowledge, step by step explanation and demonstration was fantastic! Absolute top bloke! Looking forward to doing the two day chef's knife course! Many thanks, Chris Fox

Response from White Tiger Knives:

Hi Chris

I'm really happy that you had such a great day, it was hot, it was challenging, but what a man blade you made. There's always room on the dance card if you fancy coming back on the two day course.
