“There’s something about a good knife that speaks to you. Call it primal.”
Always an admirer of skilled work, John took a special interest in knives when he cut himself on a fine kitchen knife given to him by a friend. I knew then I wanted to create one myself. I decided to take a knife class but living on Saba meant I would wait months before my schedule worked to attend a course. So I started watching YouTube videos, a lot of them! I create each knife with a purpose. Whether a survival knife, chef knife or fillet knife. The only problem is, once I create it, it’s so hard to hand it to another.”
John's workshops will take place at his workshop in Fort Bay next to Sea Saba. This course takes 3 sessions over 3 days; you must bring your own knife.
Workshop 1: Friday, September 1st 4-7pm, Saturday, September 2nd 3-4pm AND Monday, September 4th 4-7pm
Make a leather sheath for your favorite knife!
