Student Knife made in one of Gil's classes.
The classes will be limited to only THREE students per session, which will allow for a lot of individual attention. The classes will be held for five consecutive days, Monday-Friday, from 9:00 am to 5:30 pm. I will take you through the entire knife making process which includes design, operating a metal cutting band saw, grinding, heat treating, polishing, making the guard and pommel, shaping handles, and finishing with making a sheath and final sharpening.
We will even have a reception and dinner at my home where we can relax and get to know each other.
The classes will be held in my shop in LaGrange, KY. LaGrange is approximately 22 miles from downtown Louisville, Kentucky. There are four motels within five minutes of my shop, and they are very reasonably priced. Click HERE for locations of area hotels. There are also several Restaurants in the same area.

The fee for attending the five-day class is $1500, which
includes most materials and one (1) completed knife.
If you wish to make two knives, there is an additional minimum charge of $250 for the second knife (could be more depending on the complexity of the second knife).
I can assure you that you will leave here having made a knife that you will be proud of.
You must be 18 years or older to attend the class.
A non-refundable deposit of $250 is due upon registration. The balance is due on the first day of class.
Once you have registered, I will email you all of the specific information you will need. If you have a passion for knives, this will be a fun and fulfilling experience. I look forward to teaching you and sharing my knowledge with you.
