$ 250.00

Provide the opportunity for a lucky recipient to  spend a  weekend in the bush,  hand crafting a metal blade from scrap metal, shaping a timber handle, then assembling and sharpening their very own knife.  The knife will have a strong blade that won’t snap, and is easy to sharpen in the field. The shape and style is good for bush crafts, wood carving, skinning and general outdoor adventure, and we have also found them to be great in the kitchen!

The workshop only runs with with a total of four participants (or a total price of $1000 has been paid). Typically, this gift voucher is only available for purchase in conjunction with 3 other people also buying a gift voucher (ie 4 friends or family members). However, we do have a  list of names of people interested in  knife workshops, and if you contact us we may be able to work something out.

This is a weekend workshop with bush camping on Saturday night, in a basic but comfortable campground (camping fee included in price, bring your own camping equipment or campervan etc). Bush-themed morning tea is provided on Saturday and Sunday but you need to bring your own food for main meals.
