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.
What a great experience! Recently joined a small group of friendly and enthusiastic people with my 18 yr old son for a long weekend of knife making fun in North Wales at The Forge. Jamie and Fergus have a great laid back attitude that put everyone at ease. They are very knowledgeable and skilled and are very keen to help you do as well as you can on the course. We both came away with knives we were proud of. We had a fun educational weekend with super company and good food. Were looking forward to booking our next course with Jamie and Fergus next year. Thanks both.
