Barrytown Knifemaking

Make your own unique handforged knife!


A full day activity, you get to forge your own steel blade, attach a native timber handle, shape it, grind and polish down to a mirror finish!! Hunting knives, kitchen knives, skinning knives..... whichever you like, and a wonderful AND useful souvenir to take home!!!

“One of the best activities in New Zealand.”
