WORKSHOP “MAKE YOUR OWN KNIFE”
You can choose between 2 methods of knife making. Stock removal or forging. Stock removal will result in more “polished” & finished look and give you more control over the end result. Forging is hard work and will result in a more rough looking knife. There’s no difference in quality or performance. You can make your own design, but I strongly advise to keep it small. You can’t make a sword in 2 days! Please note that you will attend the workshop at your own responsibility, you will be asked to sign a “waiver of liability” before we start. Minors should be accompanied by a -family- guardian taking full responsibility. I’m fluent in English, French, Dutch & Spanish. My German language skills are a WIP…
The workshop is fully equipped with grinders, hammers, tools, steel, wood, handle materials, heat treating equipment, forges, etc…Bring your own dust mask (P2 or P3) and dress in old cotton clothing that you’re not fond off. You will get dirty! In winter dress warm. If you have your own working gloves & protection glasses take them with you. Also bring your own lunch.

There’s a possibility to book a basic room incl. breakfast/private bathroom at our house. You can also stay in hotel Girenbad, that’s a 5 minute walk from the workshop. The surrounding area is beautiful and perfect for long walks. Zurich City is a 45 minute drive or you can go by public transport.
