I've had this in mind, and gone over it a couple of times and it's doable. So lets try..

13-14 may. Two days fairly intensive knifemaking. 2000 sek each three or four participants. This is including crashing at my house.

You'll get to make your kitchen knife with me showing the ropes, I can also help getting the knives last bit to cutting well if needed. We will be cutting, heat treating, grinding, finishing, making handle and fitting them. Most time will be spent on the blade. We can even play with waterquenching and hamons (with backup blades cut hehe ;))

It's very dirty, as well as a little dangerous, work. I'll look into and possibly you need to sign some waiver or so, but ofc we'll start with some basic machine handling and safety stuff.

You'll need to be in Stockholm, Stureby, early saturday.

If more people than I can fit are interested, customers will be prioritized. Shoot me a email or pm if you want to come :thumbsup:

Definately! If it goes well (no major hurts, knives get made, happy participants) I'll try to arrange it regularly and with good time to plan ahead. There seems to be alot of interest :knife:

Really good initiative Robin! I would love to join, but it might be a bit too tight this time! If you host another, I will definitely show up!

Anton waterquenching, he was sort of amazed and forgot about time... https://www.instagram.com/p/BUDEgXggrJi/
