    Simona and Alexander now no living in my town, but every summer they come to their grandmother's for a few weeks and take an intensive (daily) course in my studio.

    What have we not done? This year, the project is ambitious - making a knife.

    Nobody want to give a prognose what and whether it will work out.
    I will give the story day by day and hope for a happy end


    Day 1

    Who's my knife?

    If I write it that they did everything, I will not be honest.
    First meeting with belt and angle grinders. Wow, that's a serious thing

    Very cool. I would have loved to have a chance to learn knife making as a teen.

    My uncle was a knife maker, and I had a dream of learning from him..... but he passed away before I could.

    They will cherish the experience, and the knife!
