  • Introduction to Japanese whetstones – choosing the right stone for the job
  • Care and maintenance tips

*You can bring your favourite knife with you, or we’ll provide one for you
*6 people per class

Advanced Sharpening Course

This class is designed for people who already have a grasp of the basics of sharpening, but want to take it further.

We’ll look at some more advanced techniques of knife sharpening and thinning, as well as polishing and the use of natural whetstones. The second hour of the class is tailored on the day to look in more detail at any specific things you want to cover. So feel free to bring along any types of knives, tools, or stones that you’d like to learn more about. Though our own test knives, synthetic and natural stones will also be provided. Areas that can be covered:

  • Thinning and bevel refinement
  • Chip repair
  • Single bevel sharpening
  • Other edged tool sharpening and maintenance (excluding scissors!).

*4 people per class
*Lessons run for about 2-2,5 hours
*£90pp
