What People Are Saying:

I purchased the beginner bladesmith course because I wanted to learn more of the forging process from Mastersmith Kyle Royer. This course did not disappoint in both the gas forge section and coal forge section. Kyle was able to show angles of how to hold the blade on the anvil and what angle to hit the blade at.

This course is the most comprehensive course you will find and will save you countless hours trying to put all the pieces together to make a quality knife. I’ve learned more from this course than I have from hundreds of hours combing through forums, YouTube, and my own trial by error. If you’re starting out with nothing more than a hammer, files, and a basic forge, you can make a functional work of art right alongside Kyle. This course is the single most useful tool I’ve invested in since starting my journey down the path towards becoming a master.

Once COVID hit, I knew I wanted to start a new hobby. I love woodworking but needed something different. Most in-person blacksmithing/metalsmithing classes shut down or were way outside my budget. I wanted something that could teach a complete beginner how to make a knife. I didn't want to fork over thousands of dollars for tools and supplies, as this is just a hobby to me. This class is geared towards people like: someone that has never heard the terminology or the basic techniques. It's awesome to see someone at Kyle's level using basic/cheap tools to make a knife. He clearly explains what he is doing while he is doing it. People can comment on each video and the Royer team is quick to respond with questions (both via email and on the videos). They also provide a list of tool recommendations for each video which is tremendously helpful. I also like how they take you through the entire process.

I chose Kyle's course because I started watching his YouTube and Instagram channels and have never seen a more meticulous bladesmith. His attention to detail and tricks to help you achieve them is second to none. I also appreciated how his beginner course, started you out almost at square one. He was using Amazon bought items and hand-filed and sanded. This really helped me understand what I needed to do with my 2x72 on a larger scale because I could see exactly what the hand file was doing much slower (and he has bonus chapters using a 2x72)! Once I, in my own mind, master his beginner course and make this knife 100 times I'll purchase his next level course. Their customer service response is prompt (I use the comments sections of the course and they respond quickly with the exact fix I needed), the course is well shot and explained, the descriptions under each video giving you written step-by-step instructions are a nice redundancy to have... I literally have no complaints.
