A great day spent in Barrytown leaving with the knife made and shaped by yourself. Robyn and Steven do a great job!

This was an awesome experience. My husband and I did this together, fun for both men and women. Steven who is the instructor is a wonderful guy, has a great sense of humour! Quite a sense of accomplishment to walk away with a knife you have made scratch.

Excellent finished product. Humourous day thanks to the host Steven. Nice lunch. Lots of stuff to do while waiting for knife to be completed.

A truely Unique Experience, Although I was only curious at the time, my wife suggested we do this and I'm sooo glad we did, Going back in time to create a Beautiful knife from a steel rod with the help of Steven & Robyn was amazing. Safety always First but still plenty of fun to be had by all with the enormous swing, axe throwing, archery and various animals. Only 20 min from Greytown - a must do event - highly recommended to all

Make your own knife in a single day - great souvenir and a fun day. See Lonely Planet - only the promised lunch was a bit small.

This was absolutely brilliant. One of the most enjoyable things I have EVER done. Steve and Robyn were lovely people, friendly and welcoming and very funny. There was a real emphasis on safety throughout. Beautiful knife to take home and treasure. The other activities (axe throwing, the giant swing, seeing the animals) were fun too. Te Barrypagne has to be tasted to be believed!
