Geoff Tonkin’s Tool Making Course

In  2020 Geoff continued and expanded his toolmaking courses at the new forge adjoining the Molong Workshop with Ian Percival (a man who knows all things steel).

I had attended one of these courses myself in the previous year and would highly recommend it.

I chose to make a hook knife to be used at one of Jeff Donne’s (Spoonsmith) courses. The hook knife was cut out of an old saw blade then forged into a blade on the blacksmith’s anvil, then quenched, sharpened and polished. The handle was an offcut of Macassar Ebony. Check out Geoff’s website for more details – it’s worth it!
