Knife Making Workshop

Japan is renowned for historically being the home of some of the best swordsmiths in the world. Although the time of the samurai is now far behind us, the artisan skills honed over hundreds of years to create their blades have not been lost and are now being utilised to make beautiful modern knives.

For this activity you will spend the day with a master of the craft at their workshop. Sparks will fly as you hammer away at the molten steel, shaping it into your very own knife! Learning the art of swordsmithing takes many years, but in just one day you will learn what it takes to make a simple knife which you can take home with you. A beautiful memento of a day spent immersed in the art of the blade.
