Held in Mount Nebo, QLD, my two day knife making course is designed for students with no or limited experience, but more personalized classes can be arranged for those who have already made knives or would like to focus on specific aspects of knife making.
On day one, the focus is on the blade: shaping, grinding, drilling sanding and polishing until the blade is ready for heat treatment.
On day two, the morning is spent fitting the handle, and after lunch, once all the hard work is done and the knife is finished, we can spend a relaxing afternoon cutting and stitching a leather sheath.
At the end of the course, you keep the knife, and you also have the skills to make one yourself.
To ensure we finish the knife on time, it should be of a maximum overall length of 25cm, and if it is a kitchen knife it is very unlikely we would have time to make a sheath as they take more time and effort to make.
Please advise me of any dietary requirements about a week before the course starts.
The cost is $600for one person, and $1100 for two. I will provide tea and coffee but you’ll have to bring your lunch.
Full payment is required at the time the course is booked.
It is refundable if the cancellation is done no less than two weeks before the date of the course.
