Learn how to make your own Slöjd Knives at home. During this one-day course you will make a set of your own Slöjd Knives customised to your requirements.
With the experience you gain from this course you’ll be able to make your own Slöjd Knives at home using re-purposed steel and inexpensive equipment. Best of all, you’ll be able to talk to an expert bladesmith and get advice tailored to you and your Slöjd Knives.
During this course you’ll make a set of Slöjd Knives from scratch using stock removal techniques. Tracing your designs onto a piece of steel, you’ll grind them to shape, heat treat the steel to make it hard, fit the blade in a wooden handle, and finally sharpen it. You’ll also have the chance to customise your handles from a selection of reclaimed timber.
No need to have ever used tools before - this course is accessible to everyone aged 12 and up. Please make sure long hair is tied back and enclosed footwear is worn.
