Create a beautiful, hand-crafted knife using only 100% recycled materials on this four day course.
On this course you'll:
- Forge your blade
- Temper the steel to get the perfect edge
- Be given the ability to make your own forge from recycled materials
- Handle your knife with wood, horn or antler
- Craft the sheath
- Get it razor sharp!
Ferg has been making knives for over 20 years and his experience is second to none. This is an extremely practical course and the pleasure in creating your own tool is a truly unique and timeless experience.
This is a fully catered course and people are encouraged to camp to immerse themselves in the process. You can bring your own tent or we can provide basic bell tents and beds (these are an additional £120) or you can have luxury accommodation in one of our furnished bell tents. Details here.
Attending the recent knife making course (April 2019). Thoroughly enjoyed myself, beating metal with a hammer, great stress reliever.
Pros: Took me from no experience to creating a knife and sheath I was more than happy with.
Cons: I now want to buy my own forge and continue to make my own knives (wife not happy)
I would recommend this to anyone from 12 upwards. Ferg, Jamie and the team looked after each of us. It was also great to not have any power tools as it will make you appreciate them when you get home :).
