During the basic Bladesmithing workshop people can make a variety of knife styles and sizes, some examples are show below which are for sale in order to raise funds for future workshops. They can be supplied pre-sharpened or Steve will offer a free workshop on how to sharpen them properly so that you can keep them in best condition yourself. Owing to legal restrictions about sending knives through the post, they can only be exchanged in-person at rLab and you will have to bring photo ID.
