Full description
The development of steel tools and weaponry was a major milestone in human history, enabling us to rise above the animals, build farms, and establish ourselves as a dominant species throughout history. The smithing families in the Siem Reap area have been honing their knife-skills craft for centuries, and the next generation will most likely continue the tradition.

In a small group of no more than 6 students, enjoy the opportunity to feel like a true blacksmith responsible for making weapons for kings and knights. Design and create a special blade just for yourself, discovering what it was like to fill the all-important position of blacksmith.
