Make your own Japanese-style chef's knife in either of our one- or two-day courses.
We'll teach you how to make a fantastic knife from start to finish, guiding you along the way in using various tools and techniques to create you own work of cutlery art.
You can design your own shape and select your handle materials to make a knife that you'll love using, and which may indeed become an heirloom.

Two-day Damascus steel workshop:
This is the full experience starting from the most basic elements, forge-welding your layers of steel together with hammer and anvil and creating your Damascus steel billet with our 25 tonne hydraulic press. And that's just day one...
