This variant is currently sold out
Learn the basics of sharpening knives on whetstones in a hands-on lesson with our sharpening experts at COAL DROPS YARD.
The lesson will cover the theory of sharpening and sharpening techniques, including the differences between sharpening Japanese and European knives. It will include demonstrations followed by hands-on sessions to allow you to demonstrate how to find the right angle, finish and ensuring you do not damage the knife. We will also talk through information on different types of bevels, different styles of knives and the basic theory about knife care.
Lessons are two hours and take place at our Coal Drops Yard Shop. We like the lessons to be as hands on as possible, we provide stones and knives to start practising sharpening on. There will be opportunity for questions and the instructor will monitor your technique and offer suggestions for improvement. You are welcome to bring some of your own knives (and any stones you want to use) during the second half of the class.
Classes will be small with a maximum of four people. You are welcome to bring any knives or sharpening equipment although knives and stones will be provided for use during the class. They take place at Unit 31, Coal Drops Yard, London N1C 4DQ.
