Build-a-Knife Workshop

admin - Tuesday, 28 June 2011 07:23

What is “Build-a Knife Workshop”? It is a program that we offer which gives you a chance to become a knife-maker for a day! And to get a better understanding of what knife-maker does. We let you design and help make your own one of a kind knife!

 

You can start with something simple, a horseshoe knife that takes 1.5-2 hours to make and costs $50, or a rail-road spike knife that takes about 2.5-3 hours to make and costs $100. If you are really up for the challenge, you can make a day out of it and help build your own tactical utility/hunter knife, that comes with a sheath that you help create yourself. This option is $150 and takes 4-8 hours to complete. We also offer a “Full build” Which allows you to spend a full day with us, learning the ends and outs of knife making. You will leave the shop with enough information to go home and start building your own knives. The cost for this is $200 dollars

So if you’re a family or a group that wants to do something different, give us a call or send an e-mail, and we’ll see if we can make arrangements to make it happen. Remember that if it’s more than person participating you must allow more time to complete the projects.

 

For those of you that want to learn more about making knives in general, we also offer a program that allows you to work with the knife-maker. This is a one-on-one experience so the individual will have no interruptions and learn more about hammering out a blade, grinding it, and heat treating it. This program is full of information. You must make an appointment for this. It will take all day (9:00-? ). The cost of this is $150 per day. Give us a call @ 865-765-0459 send or an e-mail to verify a day with a knife-maker.

Get in touch with us today to schedule yours!

    Greetings from the swamps of Louisiana!
    I was up there a few years ago but yall were closed. I would like to find out more about the one on one training day. I am looking to be in your area about mid October. Do you have anything scheduled around that time? Thank you in advance for your consideration of this request.

    Hey Tom, we made it home!
    Thank you for allowing me to take part in the all day knife making classes. Excellent instruction and low pressure. You are smooth and calm with your instruction. It was easy to follow your lead and comments. I am still writing down the steps so I don’t forget them.
    The finished knife is great! I have had nothing but comments on it. The Froe was a head scratcher for most people. When I told them what it was they jumped on it. I am passing out your business information. Two guys here want to take on the all day knife making class.
    I will be asking a few questions before long. Thank you again for your time and patients.
    Regards to Ms. Rebecca.
    Merry Christmas to you and yours.
