Barrytown Knifemaking

West Coast
All year round

Something very different!

Forge your own blade using professional knifemaking techniques and equipment, and assemble a handle using native timber and brass bolsters. Then grind, sand and smoothly finish and polish your knife to the highest standard. All of this with expert guidance and supervision every step of the way. Also, you will be presented with a mouthwatering selection of toasted sandwich ingredients to choose from, including cheese, onion, tomato, salami and chili sauces. Yum!

During the day, you will find numerous things to amuse yourself with during breaks. These include axe throwing, target practice, and a huge swing. They are all included in the price. Bargain!!! Everyone is an amateur when they arrive (although people find they remember a lot from their school days!), and you will be helped every step of the way. Bookings essential.
