A challenge of steel: Make your own chef´s knife! My chef´s knife course is intended for beginners, those interested in demanding craftsmanship who are not afraid to challenge their skills and creativity. This is a weekend course during which you design and make your own knife. On this course you will learn the basics of forging and make your very own practical kitchen knife with a wooden handle- a knife that will last from generation to generation.

The course is suitable for both beginners and more experienced hobbyists. I only take six students at a time because I want to guarantee individual teaching and provide participants with happy experiences of learning and achieving.
