BOOK A CLASS, YOUR NEXT BLADE IS CALLING

Henshaw Blades maintains a fully-equipped workshop in a luxurious Muskoka setting on the water. We offer a variety of classes to help you along your knifemaking journey from day courses for the beginner to long weekend retreats for the serious bladesmith.

No matter your skill level, let us take you further into knifemaking.

This summer Craig will be teaching a week long course at Fleming College in Haliburton.

Come learn how to forge your own knife with me in a smaller class environment where every student gets their own workstation!
