The small, coastal Barrytown turned out to be less a town and more three houses and a sheep but despite our initial uncertainty upon discovering said lack of civilisation, nonetheless it was here we found ourselves for a lesson in becoming master blacksmiths!
Ok, so master was a slight overstatement but Barrytown Knifemaking does offer the opportunity to forge and craft your own small blade, which you take home as a pretty cool souvenir. We were supervised all the way through the process from forging the basic shape of our own knife from a shaft of steel all the way up to the final sanding, shaping and polishing of the handle and blade.
So there you have it, we are now fully armed and dangerous! 😉
