Make your own Chef ‘s Knife!
About the Course
Our new course by popular request. The two day chef's style knife course is designed for beginners that have no or little experience in metalwork or blacksmithing. The course starts with a quick safety talk and a cup of coffee.
The material we will be using will be from spring steel which has a greater carbon content, these are the properties that make it more suitable to being hardened to ensure it keeps a much better edge to the blade, we also use leaf springs which give a really great texture and are often preferred to new steel. New steel is available upon request at no extra cost.
All courses include materials. PPE will be provided but please wear sturdy shoes/boots and old clothes. No fleeces or sandals please. We feel obliged to advise all budding bladesmiths and blacksmiths that although we have not had any injuries of note and we take every precaution you obviously make cut yourself or get a blister if your hands are soft and plasters are available if required.
Included in the price is a cooked lunch in a local pub . Teas, coffee and refreshments are on a constant supply.
If you have any special dietary requirements please let us know in advance and we shall endeavor to meet them.
