Knife making workshop

Where
13-15 Mitchell Rd
Alexandria NSW 2015
Australia
When

Wednesdays and Weekends, 8am to 4pm Wednesday 15 February to Sunday 30 April

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.
