We're happy to announce we’re offering a 1 day knife class. No experience required!

I have a friend who is always telling people about how his dad's built a chef knife over 30 years ago that he still uses to this day! Come make a custom knife with us, make some memories and a knife you can pass onto your children who can tell their friends this same story in 30 years time.

Don’t have enough time for our 2 day class? Cannot travel far for 2 days but still want to make a custom knife? Our 1 day class solves this problem.

In our 1 day class, we will have pre-heat treated stainless steel knife blanks for you to choose from. If you want any specific style please let me know as we can work together and make it so it’s ready for your class. We will have pre-made custom Savage resin handles for you to choose from.

We go over the whole process of making the knife together and I will also go into details on heat treating the stainless steel and how we custom make our hybrid resin scales.
