Make a Knife

For details and bookings, refer to

Have a go at blacksmithing or knife making. Forge a knife from raw steel to a blade you will treasure forever.

Using the traditional Blacksmith tool kit of forge, hammer and anvil we first forge and shape the blade.

Once forged, a little tidying up with the file or grinder can be done prior to heat treating and attaching your handle.

We offer a full day activity from 8.15 am to 4.00 pm  Booking is essential.

We include lunch, a selection of gourmet pizzas provided by Wakefield’s own Cafe Rhubarb or other local products from the bakery depending on availability. Please let us know any special dietary requirements at the time of booking.

You do not need any previous experience or skills – just enthusiasm and a willingness to give things a go.  We offer a unique day within the Nelson region and cater for all abilities.  However, due to the nature of the activity, we only accept children who are 13 years or older with adult supervision.
