Chef Knife Making Workshop, 1-day Hands-on experience

Location: Brookvale, NSW 2100 (Northern Beaches, Sydney)

Come spend an exciting day with us on this practical introduction to knife making, and go home with your very own hand forged chef knife from high carbon steel and a beatiful handle!

You will experience shaping your own knife with hammer and fire, as well as learn a bit about the forge, anvil, tools and techniques used in blacksmithing.

This is the most involved workshop we have and includes forging your own blade, heat treating it yourself, grinding it to shape and attaching it to a pre-made handle.

This is a full-on day from 8 am to 4 pm consisting of:
Safety briefing, tool oveview, hammer/anvil/grinder/heat treatment
Blacksmithing: Forging your own blade form high-carbon steel
Heat treatment: Heat to non-magnetic and quench your blade
Lunch break: hydrate after forging session and get some food into you
Grinding room: Safety, tool overview, grinder operation, blade grinding technique
Grinding the blade: profile to your design, grind bevels to sharp
Finishing the blade: Progress to high grit belts and finish with scotch brite for a satin grinder-finish
Handle fitting: select a pre-made handle and attach this to your chef knife
Sharpening: we will sharpen your completed Forged Chef Knife before you finish for the day
1-day hands-on experience where you will make your own forged Chef Knife

Included:

All materials required (carbon steel, hammers, tongs, anvil, gas forge, PPE, grinder, abrasives etc)
Forging your own knife with hammer and anvil
Help with grinding bevels or forging as required, we are there to help
heat treating your own blade by heating and quenching in oil
All instructions and support required
Your day: 08.00 am to 4.00 pm with a couple of short breaks.

The day starts with a Safety Briefing and then we discuss what it takes to get into knife making as a hobby.

The tools required, where to source materials, safe working practises and an overview of the project of the day.

Because this is the most involved workshop we hold, we have changed the day to start earlier and finish later, to give you more time to craft a great chef knife.

You will do the following on your day:

hand forging to shape
hammering in bevels
drawing out the tang and turning this into the handle
heat treatment of carbon steel including quenching the blade and tempering
Completing the knife blade by grinding it to shape
Note: to complete the knife in one day, we will use pre-made handles and there is no handle construction component of this course.
