'Make Your Own Knife' Workshop with FKK and Geoff Feder


The 6th edition of our 'make your own knife' workshop is back! Once again we are welcoming our good friend Geoff Feder of Feder Knives in NY. Geoff and Tomer Botner and the team here at Florentine Kitchen Knives here in Barcelona, will host TWO X TWO-DAY weekend, knifemaking workshops for 8 people in each one! 

For these workshops we will design a large limited edition blade, which we will only be making one for each participant in the workshop. Participants will be able to pick their own handle makeups and will of course grind, finish, assemble, shape, polish, sharpen and engrave their knives. 

The workshop is designed for complete beginners with no prior knowledge needed, however, more experienced makers are very welcome and are sure to pick up some new tricks. The workshop is structured so that the participants will spend mostly 1-on-1 time with the makers for about 4-5 hours on each of the 2 days, and come together for an outdoor meal on the Florentine Kitchen Knives rooftop deck.

We are happy to help with travel and accommodation recommendations, but please note they are not included in the price of the workshop. Please feel free to email with any questions you may have.
