Want to make a knife?

I offer one-on-one classes in my San Francisco forge. Options vary depending on what you’re hoping to learn, but generally it takes two days, either consecutive or spaced over a few weekends, to make a small paring knife or something of equal size. You’ll choose the type of steel, do all the forging and shaping yourself, and then choose the wood out of my ever-growing collection to shape it for a handle. The cost is based on an hourly rate depending on the day of the week that you prefer with weekends costing more. If this class is for you, send me an email to work out details and ask questions prior to booking. If this class is for someone else, please purchase a gift certificate and I will do my best to work out the details with the recipient directly to accommodate what they’re hoping to learn.
