“Knowing that only two students are booked in at any one time adds a level of learning engagement that is rare to find. My dad has had the experience of working with and learning from Rowan while having the pride and satisfaction of creating a beautiful and functional knife that is likely to become a family heirloom.“ - Lucy 2018

“Rowan ensured we both went away with a gorgeous hand made knife and the sharpening skills to go with it. He tailored the course to suit both beginners (my brother works in an office) and those with trade experience (I myself am a qualified carpenter and builder). It was great being in a class with only two students as we got quality one on one guidance.” - Nadia 2018
