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. Price for this 2-day course is 495 CHF, everything included.
