Now this is cool.
My nephew recently turned 16, and I heard that the Dollywood Blacksmith & Foundry in Craftsman’s Valley taught the skill of knife-making! I knew he would jump at the chance to make his own knife, but I had no idea what a fun experience this would be for both of us. I learned a lot just from watching Master Craftsman John show Payton how a knife is forged.
There are three different kinds of knives you can choose from, and the price varies based on the style of the blade.
