Knife Sharpening by Hand Workshop

A Sharp knife in the kitchen and in the woodshop is not only a pleasure to use but much safer, too! Unfortunately, creating that perfect edge can be very difficult, especially when there is so much information out there about sharpening! 

In this workshop, join Woodworker and Survival Skills Instructor Ryan Johnson for a tutorial on all things sharp. We’ll discuss the principles of sharpening, the chemistry of steel and how this knowledge helps us, and what materials to use and buy! Once we have built our background of understanding, we’ll use freehand techniques to sharpen our knives and receive hands-on training. 

If the weather is kind to us, we’ll be outside for the class, so bring appropriate layers. If necessary, we’ll go indoors. Please bring water and any snacks/ or dinner you may need for the duration of the session. Please bring 2-3 knives from your arsenal to practice your sharpening technique. 

If you don’t have any knives or don’t know what to bring, contact Ryan.
