Response from White Tiger Knives:

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."

Kind regards

Steve

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.

Hi Graham

Thank you very much for your review. It's great to get feedback from students on their courses days and see what I'm doing from someone elses perspective. It was a great, full on and hot two days.

We did the one day course and made knives. Can’t recommend this course enough. Steve is a great guy. Approachable and knowledgeable, he made us feel welcome and comfortable during the day. As novices we were outside our comfort zone but thoroughly enjoyed the course. We gained lots of new skills and had a broad overview of what it takes to be a blacksmith. I can’t wait to expand on the skills and start a new hobby.
Great value for money!

Response from White Tiger Knives:

Hi Luke

I'm so glad that you both enjoyed yourselves so much on your bladesmithing day with me. It's a pleasure to share what I do with such enthusiastic people. There'll always be a space on the dance card if you'd like to come back again.

Hi Amy

Thank you very much for your review. It really was a great day and puts into perspective what those guys on Forged in Fire have to achieve in three hours. Both of your knives will cut.

Absolutely amazing man !! With a world of experience !! Great teacher with every detail covered. I have made a knife I am so proud of and there is not one like it in the world !!. Thanks Steve for your patience and kindness .

Response from White Tiger Knives:

Hi Gordy

Thank you very much for your review and I am very pleased that you had such a rewarding day. I do go over a lot of things during the course of the day, but as I say right at the beginning of every lesson, whoever attends has to go away with a completed knife, which is sharp and is completely functional, but most importantly has been hand crafted by them. That after all is what makes a custom knife so special, it is the uniqueness of each and every one.

Had a really great day with Steve, from start to finish made me feel very welcome, was a great experience learning the basic process of forging a knife, was very clear on each instruction and at the end made a knife to be proud of.

Once again thanks for a great day, Steve!!

Response from White Tiger Knives:

Good morning Graham

Thank you for your very gracious review. I've said it before, but it really does mean a great deal to me that whoever attends one of my courses goes away with a positive experience and let's not forget a wickedly sharp knife. It really is a pleasure to open up the world of bladesmithing to a wider audience and to show some of my basic skills because I do not consider myself a master in any aspect of knife making. I have to add that I have learnt quite a few things on the way with my interaction with students on my courses, every day really is a school day. The course days are always great fun, full on and I hope leave you wanting just a little more, thank you once again.

What a great day!

Turned up made to feel at ease and comfortable straight away.

Steve was a great teacher, guiding and mentoring throughout the day, and I made a knife that I'm proud of.

+ there was loads of cups of tea so an added bonus.

But all together I would give this 5 out of 5 stars, and recommend it to anyone that would listen.

Response from White Tiger Knives:

Hi Mike

Thank you very much for your review. It's a pleasure to see how much enjoyment guys get from making thier own knife. I really believe that there's not a more personal, tactile and versatile tool that you can own and to make that one for yourself just puts the cherry on the top.

Hi Chris

I'm really pleased that you enjoyed your day with me so much, apologies now if you've been bitten by the knife making bug. You may become an official lost cause because once knife making gets under your skin it can become all consuming.

I took part in a one day bladesmithing course, and what a day it was. Steve is a down to earth bloke with a great sense of humour. I had such a good day in the workshop, and to top it off came home with my new pride and joy. It is remarkable how with some expert tuition a scrap bit of spring steel can be transformed so positively. I really want to get back to forging some time soon.

P.S. Be warned Steve, I may be after some scraps from your R&D bin so I can give it a go at home.

Response from White Tiger Knives:

Hi Paul

I wondered why you kept diving into that bin. I thought it was to get away from my terrible jokes. Now I realise it was to rifle through my old steel scraps. Really chuffed you had such an enjoyable day in the shop with me. I hope the new love of your life is sitting close to hand.

Excellent course with an excellent teacher, Steve was patient, knowledgeable and enthusiastic throughout. It's clear Steve has a passion for bladesmithing and is more than happy to share his knowledge and his ‘man shed’. I’d highly recommend, and was great to finish a course with something I can proudly show people whilst warning them not to touch as it’s ‘freaking’ sharp!

Hi Paul

Thank you for your review and I'm really pleased that you enjoyed your day so much, watch those fingers!

Good morning Mark

It was a full on two days that produced a beautiful Nakiri. Your choice of the hawthorn for the handle was perfect and topped off your beautifully crafted high carbon steel blade. I'm really pleased that you're so happy with the knife you made.

Response from White Tiger Knives:

Hi Mark

It's very gratifying to know how much you enjoyed your two day course with me. You should be very proud with how your chefs knife turned out. With the addition of the octagonal holly handle, no small feat in it's self, that you made for her it definitely will hold it's own against any factory made piece and I can guarantee will out perform all of them. I look forward to our next session in the shop and to see what we can create there.
