    Morning folks :)

    The first group knife making course of the year is on in a couple of weeks time and I find myself with a couple of spare places! So I thought I would offer them up here :dancer:


    The course is set for the weekend of 26th-27th and held in my Woodland Workshop in the heart of Devon, about 10 miles west of Exeter. You will be part of a small group (no more than 6 in a group) making knives from Sheffield made spring steel and beautiful native hardwoods. Also, all of the forging will be done using my historical forges and no power tools will be employed in the making (you don't need them!).

    Cost per head is £200 for the weekend with all materials and refreshments included (but not meals).

    Also, you are very welcome to camp in the 10 acre woodland where the workshop is situated :)


    Here are a few pictures from previous courses to give you an idea, but for more details please have a look at this page on my website.

    And if there are enough people (3 minimum) who would like to stay on for a third day, we can make sheathes for the knives too :) All for only an extra £50

    So if you are interested then please get in touch ASAP, since it is only a couple of weeks away!

    Thanks for looking folks

    It was me - complete with a filthy cold and Tennis elbow!
    I was suffering!
    BUT - I had a great time, turned out a very usable knife and would recommend the course to anyone!
    I even had a fox visit me in my tarp in the night!
    Thinking about it? - DO IT!

    Looking forwards to this Dave, can't believe you still have a space up for grabs !

    Is it stoves only for the camping in the woods or are you okay with small cooking fires ?

    Cheers, Paul

    Rucksack's pretty much all packed and sorted ready for the trip to Devon on Friday :)

    Couple of nights in the hammock under the new Alpkit Rig21 tarp to try it out, and a bit of metal bashing over the weekend, looking forwards :)

    Think there's still spaces available too ?!

    Cheers, Paul
