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 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 booking.
