Knots and Knives Workshop

"A dull knife is a dangerous knife"

Have you ever attempted to sharpen your knives, but ended up putting a duller edge on the blade? Have you ever wanted to learn how to put a hair poppn' edge on your knives? If so, this work shop is for you. 

After we are done sharpening our knives you will learn how to safely and keenly use your knife for woodsman activities, through a practical use exercise.

From there we move on to useful camp knots used for lashing, cinching, securing, tensioning, jamming and more. 

These knots are more than just your average everyday granny or overhand knot. Some of the knots you'll learn are used to provide proper tension on ridgelines and guy lines without additional pieces of gear. Other knots you'll learn are sliding locking knots that are extremely helpful in getting your tarps pulled tight. You'll also learn how to use them under which application
