Sharpening Masterclass

Sharpening Masterclass

Sharpening Masterclass


Join us in our Battersea studio for a two hour knife sharpening course. 


On this course you'll master the art of sharpening using Japanese whetstones, as well as gaining a deep knowledge of knife forging, blade geometry and the history of knife making. 

The course is extremely hands-on and practical; and is designed to suit people of all ages and abilities. 


As one of only six people on the course, you'll receive two hours of tailored tuition. And whilst we encourage you to bring your favourite knife, everything else will be provided for you (including a glass or two of something cold and delicious).

Just show-up at 7pm ready to learn. 


If you're buying the course as a gift for someone else tell us in the 'Special Notes' section before checkout and we'll send you a printer voucher. 

Recipients can redeem their voucher against any course of their choosing. Just email or call +44(0)7799 484 041 to book in.


Our classes are led by master sharpener, Rodrigo, from knife sharpeners Togidai.

In addition to being a member of the To-Ken Society (a community dedicated to the preservation of Japanese nihonto swords), Rodrigo is also recognised as a 1st Class practitioner by Hitohira’s World Sharpeners Union.

He is responsible for sharpening knives at some of the UK's most prestigious restaurants, including The Fat Duck and Restaurant Gordon Ramsay.
