Description

About The Knife Making Workshop

Learn to make a knife under my guidance and supervision, and receive instructions on finishing your very own knife and leather sheath, using natural materials that I have been collecting from Icelandic nature through the years – the same as were used by the Vikings.

I will explain the knife-making process to you and teach you the same techniques I have been using and mastering for decades, including designing, sanding, polishing, shaping handles, and, last but not least, making a sheath.

Through the ages the Nordic people depended greatly on hunting to sustain themselves. The need for constant hunting resulted in just about all grown men carrying knives on their belts. In the harsh Nordic landscape the quality of your knife could be a decisive factor in your survival.

Don’t miss this educational experience to become a knife-maker for a day. At the end of the day you will have made a unique one-of-a-kind knife, a knife that you will be proud of, a knife with a story to tell.

About the host

Hi, I have been making knives since I can remember. My knives are not simply for admiring, they are made to be used. They are great for hunting, fishing or having with you while you are on a hike.
