Bladesmithing Workshop with Mourne Creative, Co. Down

This is a basic Blade-smithing or knife making workshop that covers the fundamentals of forging, grinding and heat-treating a blade. No experience is needed and Niall McGinley will guide you through:

  • Using a gas forge
  • Forging the blade to shape
  • Blade shaping, using grinder file and abrasive paper
  • Heat treating
  • Blade finishing, sharpening, and edge testing

The blades you make will be made from plain carbon steel which is a good forging and forgiving knife steel. Have a break from the Forge to enjoy a hearty homemade Mourne Lunch topped off with GF Brownies. Come learn a new skill and enjoy a new challenge over at our purpose built forge in the idyllic setting of the Mourne Mountains, Ireland.
