The interest in knife making has blown up since the TV show 'Forged in Fire' has introduced more people to the art of bladesmithing.
Whether you've seen the show, or you just love the idea of trying your hand at forging you're in the right place.
At VlakVark Forge we've been giving all sorts of people bladesmithing tuition...
- Fathers and sons who come to us for the bonding experience
- Couples wanting to build memories
- Creative women curious about crafting in another material
- Boyfriends and husbands who've received vouchers from loved ones... and
- Families having an unforgettable day out
Whatever brings you to VlakVark we promise you'll leave with a smile on your face!
This weekend course is available to anyone over the age of 13. It offers the opportunity not only to learn bladesmithing skills as a complete novice, but to put them into practice making a fully usable carbon steel knife under the guidance of our expert craftsmen.
We'll steer you safely through every step from the materials to the basic techniques, tools and hints, and when you have completed the course you will be the proud owner of your very own handmade knife with handle.
