  1. I really enjoyed my recent knife making course so much that I have booked another one!
    Ronen is a wonderful, patient and very skilled craft teacher who has piqued my interest in forging metal and knife making to a point where I want to keep perusing this historic craft.
    His coffee’s pretty good as well!

  2. Hello,

    I am looking to send my partner and dad on a Knife making course in the near future, can you please let me know course price and availability and whether the pictures of the knifes shown on this page are made in a 1 or 2 day course?

    Thank you and kind regards,


  3. Ronan was a great and talented teacher and was very keen to convey his knowledge and skills. The course was excellent value.

    I was very pleased with my finished knife and would highly recommend Ronan’s course.

    I now want a forge!

  4. Had a great two day course with Ronen set in a idyllic location in the Cornish countryside. Fantastic value for money and you come away with a great knife Ronen will help you every step of the way. I had no experience at making knife blades and managed to make a lovely knife with help. Try something new and book a course
