Over the day you will forge a piece of recycled steel into a small utility knife. Use power tools to grind in the shape. Blades will be heat treat to make the steel hard but flexible, and finally fit and shape a wooden handle to make it truly your own. Blade length will be approximately 100mm.One day knife making class is hosted at the Mt Albert workshop. Classes start at 8.30 am and usually run until 5.30pm. Lunch is provided.
