Join master knife maker and blacksmith Shea Stackhouse for this amazing workshop!
Students will produce a Damascus steel paring knife from start to finish. You will be taught:

Drawing out the steel and forging the profile of your knife

Grinding and sanding
Using the angle grinder and belt sander to refine your knife profile, remove forge marks and clean back your blade

Heat treating the blade
The knife will be hardened and tempered to give it the hardness, toughness and flexibility it needs to perform as a knife.
Handle making

Students can select a handle material from our stocks or bring your own timber/handle material. You will measure the handle material to fit the tang then sand it down to your selected design.

Finally you will learn how to sharpen the blade ready for use.
