What our customers say...
" Just wanted to thank you both for the hospitality you gave to us on the Axe/Knife Maintenance course that you put on for us. There was lots of Coffee/Tea and biscuits through the course and with all the talking going on it was most welcome.
Mike covered a wide range of cutting tools and not only demonstrated the sharpening process but allowed us to practice these skills individually. The course content was excellent and Mike maintained a learning pace that was most welcome to us all. I will most certainly be attending some of your other courses.
Once again, thank you for a most informative course.
Best Regards
David "
