It was a really great day and a super experience. It has a special value because it is completely self-made, of course with very good support. Only to recommend.

Super experience! We have experienced and learned a lot from Alex. Elke has spoiled us culinary and made the leather sheaths with us. At the end you have your self forged knife in hand and is mega proud of it. Thanks again to Alex and Elke for the 2 great days!!!

A very interesting and entertaining day. The choice of materials for blades and handles is completely free. I was surprised how much you are allowed to do yourself in the course. Everything is explained in detail and practiced beforehand. Alex only intervenes in a supportive way and makes sure that minor mistakes are corrected at the end. However, the short participant is involved in every step (except for sanding, but that is up to the professional). Very nice and familiar atmosphere from beginning to end. In advance I was very well advised and informed by Elke. A very nice and interesting experience with a great result.

Absolutely unique experience with Alex and his wife Elke.
We were there as a couple for a knifemaking course for outdoor knives - and were then actually alone with Alex and Elke. You are not dispatched here in a larger group, but it was a very private and almost familiar contact, which we liked very much.

You can choose from a wide range of materials for blade, handle and leather sheath. The size and shape of the blade, handle and sheath can also be specified according to personal preference.
For each piece, Alex knows exactly where it comes from. There is a lot of emphasis on regional materials or with clarified origin, as well as respectful treatment of animal material.

Prior knowledge is not required, you get the individual steps explained very well and also makes first only a test piece, before it goes to the actual blade - here you get then no half-finished blank, but really only a piece of flat steel, which is forged step by step in shape.
During the forging itself, you always get support from Alex in guiding the steel over the anvil. To forge completely alone you can not learn in a 1-day course, that should hopefully be aware of everyone.

The knife surfaces are deliberately not ground smooth at the end and thus get a very personal touch, because the own hammer blows and the material still remain recognizable. You get an absolutely unique piece made of special and high-quality materials, and that in pure handwork up to sewing your own knife sheath.

Alex's wife Elke also takes care of food and drink. We felt very comfortable at all times and can highly recommend the course!

As soon as you come to the farm of the tin Alex, you feel at home. He (and also his wife) are fundamentally warm people with whom you can talk about God and the world.

Excellent expertise and in-depth knowledge of the materials used, their history and the craft of forging and knife making in general is always present.

I will recommend the course immediately and also give it as a gift.

I am very grateful to have experienced this course. It was a very nice experience, which is very difficult to be surpassed by the totality of what was learned and the impressions received.

Just the right mix of doing something yourself, and support. So that you can take home a really great knife at the end.

Alex and Elke are super authentic, nice and patient. Alex has a huge knowledge of the craft of forging and shines with expertise and advice. He fully supported us in the realization of our knife ideas, so that in the end we also have exactly the knife we imagined (of course within the bounds of possibility). Every step of the process is explained in detail (why/why/what), so you get a very nice and comprehensive insight into this craft. I can only recommend Blechernen Alex to anyone who has ever considered taking such a course, because the whole package is just right.
Conclusion: Great people, great workshop, historical and high-quality materials. All in all, a great day and a great experience.
