Please read the terms & conditions before booking!


 Terms & Conditions:

  • FULL payment upon class booking. Any cancellations forfeits the full class fee.
  • Payment can be made via Card through our Classes & Training Page.
  • I am currently only offering classes for students 14 years and older. Minors will need to be accompanied by a legal guardian for the duration of the class.
  • Safety equipment is provided for all classes in the form of safety glasses, apron and leather gloves.
    Safety glasses must be worn at all times.
  • Please ensure that you have non-flammable clothing and sturdy leather shoes or boots. No shorts!
  • In the unlikely event of a class being cancelled by me, all class fees are fully refundable. However I cannot be responsible for any other costs incurred.
  • You must be in reasonably good physical condition in order to successfully complete any of my classes. Bladesmithing requires a degree of exertion. The dangers for those who have mobility issues will make these classes difficult or impossible to complete. When in doubt, phone me on 612-597-5639 to discuss.
  • I reserve the right to deny classes to anyone who I consider not physically or mentally capable of completing the given class.
