About this experience

Bash out a blade from spring steel to use in the kitchen, the field or where ever you need a sharp edge. 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 utility 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. Blade length will be approximately 100mm. Classes start at 8:30am and usually run until 5.30pm. Once booked further information will be sent a week prior to the class.
