Knife-Making with Darryl

Saturday, April 9, 2022 - 10:00am to 4:00pm

Learn to make your own knife in this weekend workshop with MakeHaven facilitator Darryl. 
The plan is to make a Japanese style Chefs knife, which is a very wide array of shapes, but to be more specific, we will make a ~6-8" Chefs knife in one of three styles. (Gyuto, Santoku, Kiritsuke). All materials included.

Must Bring
  • Closed toe shoes (they will get sparks and metal flakes on it)

  • Long Pants (Not synthetics, they will melt, Jeans or working pants are great, just nothing tight fitting against the legs. )

  • Shirt (again no synthetics, you will want something breathable though. It gets warm working the knives)

Should/could bring
  • Your own Safety Glasses, if you have them. 

  • A block of wood for a handle. (If you have something specific or meaningful for you, bring it.)

  • Lunch (I plan for a working/on the fly lunch so if you leave for food the class will still have some topics and discussion points going on.)

  • Something to transport your sharp knife in.

  • A few knives from your house. (chefs knives, paring knives, bread knives, any type)

PLEASE NOTE: This is a two-day class: Saturday, April 9: 10am-4pm & Sunday, April 10: 10am-4pm
