Make Your Own Knife have an understanding and appreciation for the form and balance that is required to ensure a knife is more than a piece of steel. Let them guide you to making a quality knife, for hunting, fishing, or for general purpose, that you can be proud of.

MYOK have a number of shapes to choose from, to suit your purpose, and the fit of your hand. You will start with a steel blank, mark out, drill, cut, shape the blade before heat treatment and tempering.  You will then prepare the handle and brass bolster before assembly, sanding and sharpening of the blade.

Starting the day with, or without any knowledge of knives and metalworking, yet finishing with their own hand crafted knife is an incredible experience.

Bookings are essential due to only two people at any one time. This is to allow for assistance during the day.
