I'm offering fixed blade knife courses. I supply all materials which include steel for one knife, sanding discs, grinding belts and handle material. You finish the course with a good looking (not to be ashamed off) fixed blade utility knife.

I teach you the basics of making a fixed blade knife. This includes, marking out and drilling the blank, hollow grind the blade, prepare the handle area, heat treating, polishing, making and fit bolsters, fit handle and finish off. I also teach you to make a leather sheath and how to etch your name on the blade and finally how to sharpen the knife.

The cost is R2000.00 / person. I can handle one or two people.
