Chef Knife Making Workshop, one-day hands-on experience

Come spend an exciting day with them on this practical introduction to knife making, and go home with your very own hand forged chef knife from high carbon steel and a beautiful handle!

You will experience shaping your own knife with hammer and fire, as well as learn a bit about the forge, anvil, tools and techniques used in blacksmithing.

This is the most involved workshop they have and includes forging your own blade, heat treating it yourself, grinding it to shape and attaching it to a pre-made handle.

Day consists of:

Safety briefing, tool overview, hammer/anvil/grinder/heat treatment
Blacksmithing: Forging your own blade form high-carbon steel
Heat treatment: Heat to non-magnetic and quench your blade
Lunch break: hydrate after forging session and get some food into you
Grinding room: Safety, tool overview, grinder operation, blade grinding technique
Grinding the blade: profile to your design, grind bevels to sharp
Finishing the blade: Progress to high grit belts and finish with scotch brite for a satin grinder-finish
Handle fitting: select a pre-made handle and attach this to your chef knife
