Be it stone, bronze or steel humans have all ways had knives, time for you to make one for yourself. This one day knife making class is hosted at the Auckland workshop. Over the day you will forge a piece of recycled steel into a small paring knife. Use power tools to grind in the shape. Then heat treat to make the steel hard but flexible, and finally fit a wooden handle to make it truly your own. The knives in this course are limited to a blade length of approximately 90mm. Classes start at 8:30am and usually run until 5pm. Further information/instruction will be sent upon inquiry.
