  • Women & Non-Binary Knife Sharpening Classes

    Currently, we are requiring all participants & instructors to wear masks for the duration of the class.

    If you want to master the art of sharpening your knives at home, this is the class for you! This much-requested class started as a collaboration with Vancouver's own Bad Academy and quickly spread to our other cities. While all folks are welcome in our regular classes, our goal is to create a safe learning space for women, femme-identifying, and non-binary folks.

    In this 2 hour class, you will learn to sharpen knives by hand on waterstones. Class size is a maximum of 4 people to allow as much hands-on training as possible for all attendees. We will cover knife construction, steels used, sharpening theory, sharpening demos and hands-on tutored sharpening. We supply stones for you to use during the class, but feel free to bring your own if you already have them. With the purchase of a class, you will receive a $50 credit to be used against the purchase of sharpening supplies after the class.
