Well, where do i start? This course is great and very interesting. Steve is a top bloke and is a great teacher of this art. I would recommend White Tiger Knives (Steve) for either course. His workshop is equipped with the necessary tools inc a kettle & biscuits.
You will thoroughly enjoy this course, I know I will be back to build on my knowledge on the future. Thanks again Steve

Response from White Tiger Knives:

Hi Steve

Thank you for your comments about your two day knife course with me. You created a beautiful Santoku and I know it'll serve you well. From our conversations over the two days I could see you've become a bit of a lost cause as far as bladesmithing is concerned. You've been bitten and there's no turning back now.

Hi Ted

Thank you for taking the time to review your day with me. I'm always very humbled when students enjoy their time in the shop and are so pleased with what that time produces in their finished knife. Whether it's one day or two they are always full on and great fun, thanks again.

Fully enjoyed our bladesmithing experience with Steve. Steve has a true passion for making knives and this adds to the experience. We were well impressed with how our knives transformed throughout the day, very rewarding end result. Would recommend highly.

Response from White Tiger Knives:

Hi Leanka

Thank you for your comments, I'm really pleased that you both enjoyed yourselves so much and you should be very proud of the blades that you both made, they turned out beautifully. I know they'll serve you well in the kitchen.

Steve, you opened up a new world for us with your one day bladesmith course. A truly fascinating, absorbing and entertaining day!
We love the knives we produced with your help and guidance and really want to come back and do it all over again.
Darren’s been costing out what he needs to get the basics..just needs a proper shed for it!

Thanks again, it won’t be the last you see of us!

Response from White Tiger Knives:

Hi Heather

Thank you for the great review, I can see the both of you spending a great deal of time making knives. Like I said once it bites you you're a lost cause. It does become quite an all consuming passion, they really are functional pieces of art. If you need any info in sourcing kit you know where I am.

Kind regards

Hi Arvid

Thank you for your kind words, it's very gratifying to hear how much you enjoyed your two day course with me. Your skill and ability were evident right from the beginning and I could see how comfortable you were working in the shop. This showed it self in that lovely faceted holly handle you made for your knife. Get that anvil and forge up and running as we discussed and you'll be well on your way to making your own knives. I'll have to come over to Antwerp to your shop for a two day course with you then.

Kind regards

Completely outside of my comfort zone, not something I've ever done before. Steve made us feel right at home, explained absolutely everything in such a way that we understood exactly what was going on, guiding us through the process and giving expert advice throughout. He's a professional through and through, and you can tell from the second you walk in that this is his passion. Would recommend wholeheartedly.

Response from White Tiger Knives:

Hi Charles

Thank you for your kind words, I'm glad that you and Katie enjoyed your bladesmithing day so much. It was a pleasure to have you both working in the shop. The days are always long and full on and I was impressed with your determination and dedication working through the blisters and all to create two beautiful knives, well done.

Kind regards

Steve ran a very professional and enjoyable day and my friend and I both learned a lot for a first introduction to knife making. We will return next year for the two day course to develop these skills further.

Steve is very accomplished but still keeps a sense of fun and camaraderie which made for a great environment to start learning this interesting craft. Highly recommended.

Response from White Tiger Knives:

Hi John

I'm really gald that you and Bruce enjoyed your one day class with me that much that you would like to come back on the two day course next year. Once I have these dates available I'll get back in touch, thank you both once again.

Kind regards

Had a brilliant day with steve, his knowledge and passion for his work can’t be beaten. He made us feel welcome as soon as we arrived and was an excellent teacher...and provided an enjoyable day all round, we couldn’t have asked for a better experience and will definitely be returning in the future! The blades we made will take pride of place in our homes for sure. Thanks again.

Response from White Tiger Knives:

Hi Luke

It was great to meet you today and a pleasure to catch up with Ray again. It's great to know that you both enjoyed your bladesmithing day so much and are so pleased with the man blades that you created, thank you once again.

What a great day today was!
This bladesmithing day was bought for me as a birthday present, and it was by far the best one I’ve ever had. It was interesting, entertaining and wholeheartedly fulfilling. I can’t recommend it enough.
Steve is a talented smith and a great teacher, who not only helped me make (and take home) an incredible knife to be proud of. But has also inspired me to do more smithing in the future.

Response from White Tiger Knives:

Hi Alex

I'm really glad that you enjoyed your bladesmithing day so much. It really was a pleasure to have you work in the shop and see the knife that you created. You'd be more than welcome to come back again to heat and beat some steel.

Response from White Tiger Knives:

Hi Stuart

I'm really pleased that you enjoyed your day so much. It was full on, but we tried some different techniques and a couple of design tweaks that really put your mark on the blade that you created. I'm glad that you're as happy with your finished man blade as I was. I'm sure when you present this to your son that he'll be honoured to call this custom blade his own. I look forward to our next excursion in the workshop.

Really enjoyed my day with Steve and learnt a lot with a brilliant teacher. He made it fun even when it required some hard work. To say I'm pleased with the knife we made would be an understatement, I'm chuffed with the result! Many thanks Steve for a great day at the forge.

Myself and a friend completed this course just over a month ago and it was truly excellent! Steve is a great bloke and an extremely knowledgable teacher. The knives we made were of top quality and are (still!) incredibly sharp!

I would highly recommend this course to anyone with even the slightest interest in forging or chef's knives!

Thanks for the course,
Ben and James :)

Response from White Tiger Knives:

Ben, James

It was a total pleasure to have you both on the two day course. The knives you created were beautiful and you both should be very proud of how they turned out.

Kind regards

Hi Shir

I am really pleased that you had such a great day making your knife with me. Choosing to do a bladesmithing day with me while you were on your holiday from Israel was an honour for me and it was a pleasure to meet your parents as well. I hope you have your blade in that vice you told me about and proudly on disay in your room. I hope you enjoyed the rest of your holiday.

Kind regards

Hi Tom

Thank you for your kind words and I'm totally chuffed that you like your man blade that much. You worked damn hard to complete that little beauty in one day and I think nine and a half hours from start to finish for a hidden tang blade of your own design was really good going. Keep her sharp and I look forward to seeing what you make with her.

Kind regards

Absolutely brilliant day!
This was my first experience of Bladesmithing but definitely won't be my last (due to the experience I had).
Totally recommended!

Steve was an excellent teacher, explained why we were doing what we were doing, and answered all questions that we had. This was not my first bladesmithing experience day, however, Steve gave us an experience far superior to those previous.

We very much enjoyed our day with Steve and will booking with him again.

I cannot recommend him enough.

Response from White Tiger Knives:

Hi Scott

Thank you for your review I'm really glad that you and Lucy enjoyed your day so much. I look forward to seeing you both again at some point in the near future.

Response from White Tiger Knives:

Hi Daniel

It was a hot full on day, but you were more than up for the challenges that the day threw at us. Sometimes with knife making it really seems that the knife doesn't want to play ball, but as you said with a little perserverance you created a beautiful and functional knife. I'm really glad that you enjoyed your day so much and are so pleased with the knife you created.
