Knifemaking - taught by Gwyl Roche

Over two days, you will handcraft a steak knife with a wooden handle. Gwyl will teach you to forge, anneal, profile and heat treat high carbon steel into your blade. You will carefully grind bevels before sharpening and honing your blade in the final process. If treated with the respect it deserves, this knife should last you a lifetime, giving you pleasure to use everyday.
