‘Make a knife with Baz’


Making your own knife is a great experience… Barry Gardner is a great teacher and knife maker but also just a great person. Personally his craftsmanship is amazing and you too will end up with a knife to be proud of. I have made a great all purpose knife and a cleaver for the kitchen… For all the women out there reading this, knife making is not just for the boys… In just one day you can go home with your own knife. What an achievement!

…after looking at a few different places over many hours, I just loved the uniqueness and quality of your business.

This workshop is such a wonderful experience, Barry you helped make some absolutely priceless memories for us of my dear dad. I cannot recommend your workshops to others highly enough. So much more than a knife.
