Knife Making Workshop

Classes, Lessons, Workshops and Talks

18 Aug 2021 to 27 Nov 2021 Once Only Event

Come spend an exciting day with us in 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!

In this class, which is suitable for beginners, 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 workshop is very involved and includes forging your own blade, heat treating it yourself, grinding it to shape and attaching it to a pre-made handle. It begins with a safety briefing and then we discuss what it takes to get into knife making as a hobby, the tools required, where to source materials, safe working practises and an overview of the project of the day.

This full-day workshop consists of:
– A safety briefing and tool overview (hammer/anvil/grinder/heat treatment).
– Blacksmithing: forging your own blade from high-carbon steel.
– Heat treatment: heat to non-magnetic and quench your blade.
