Tool Use & Maintenance Workshop

In this half-day workshop we will start out by discussing the legal framework which surrounds the use of bushcraft knives, axes and other tools.
We will focus on how you can maintain that 'shop bought' razor sharp edge on all your bushcraft tools. Our instructors will work with you to help you develop safe practice whilst using your tools and show you a variety of carving grips and techniques.

Learning Outcomes:

  • Summary of UK Law regarding bladed articles
  • Knife anatomy
  • Knife choice and selection
  • Basic knife, saw, and crook knife safe use
  • Range of useful knife grips and cutting techniques
  • Crook knife use
  • Sharpening and maintaining knives, saws and crook knives
Workshops are held at our World Of Bushcraft Centre in the Peak District, where free tea and coffee will be available.
