Rikki - - #34466

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

Steve

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 Eric

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.

Tom - - #30486

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.

Peter Smith - - #30307

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.

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.

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.

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.
