Chef's Knife Class 8/11-8/12
If you like knives or like to cook or you just want to have a blast for a couple of days, come to the Chef's Knife class here at the Burt Foster Center for Hard Work and Blisters and Small Burns.
We'll be making a forged, full-tang, carbon steel chef's knife. You will learn how to take a handful of raw materials, like the ones in the photo and turn them into the best kitchen knife you've ever used. The knife shown is an example of the kind of knife we'll be making but you can vary the blade or handle to suit your tastes or needs. This is an introductory level class so no experience is required, but certainly won't hurt if you have some.
This is a two-day class, Friday and Saturday August 11-12, 2017.
Travel: If you are thinking about traveling here for a class, here's some info. There's a great regional airport about 20 minutes from the shop in Blountville, TN (airport code: TRI). There are several hotels very close as well. The Fairfield Inn and Suites (brand new) and the Hampton Inn (Bristol, TN) are the closest, but there are many more just a short drive away. The shop is in Bristol, VA, but we are a border city so when searching for a hotel, hotels in Bristol, TN are in the same town.
The class is $750 for the two-day class. Class is limited to three people. You must be at least 18 years of age at this time.
