Forge and make your own kitchen knife with Peter Ulrich

In this very special workshop for 4 people you will forge and make your own kitchen knife. Over a weekend, a unique knife is created, which you create according to your ideas under professional guidance. So that all participants can work on their own, provided work tools and be well supervised, this workshop is designed exclusively for 4 people.

At the end of the workshop, you will take your individual and very personal knife home, combined with the experience of having gained an insight into one of humanity's oldest crafts.

The procedure

Arrival on Friday from 5:00 p.m

We start on Friday at 6 p.m. after a welcome dinner with a theoretical introduction to the topics of steel types, precious woods, occupational safety and working methods. In two days we will forge, harden and grind a kitchen knife by hand, as well as design a suitable handle and carve it out of wood.

On Saturday we will start forging and machining the blade. The shape of this knife is not specified and you decide what type of knife you want to forge. Of course, the experienced blacksmith Peter Ulrich is there to help and advise you.

On Sunday you will then make your knife handle from a selection of precious woods, followed by polishing the blade and of course grinding the blade.
