Norwegian Knifemaking: Crafting the Everyday 'Hverdags' Knife
The “tollekniv” or whittling knife is a rich cultural tradition of Norway. In this class you will make a “hverdags kniv," a style of knife gets everyday use in the fields or forest. Women often like the “damekniv”, a smaller knife to use around the house. In this 2-day class we will use the finest materials imported from Norway to fit a hand-forged blade to a wooden handle that you shape and finish by sewing a leather sheath of your own design.
