"The course is great!  I really appreciate the detail Kyle goes into.  I’m fairly new to knife making and only recently bought a 2x72 grinder.  That being said, I’m happy to have a resource that would continue to teach me for months/years to come." 




"This Online Course is an incredible tool to learn from.  I couldn’t ask for a more personal, better source of information than this."




"If you are serious about making museum quality knives to sell, this is a must course. It will put you more on the fast track. Plus many things I already knew but not to the level Kyle teaches."

-MA Knife and Rods


 "You can tell this online class was well thought out.  Everything is done extremely well, Kyle leaves nothing out.  This online course would be beneficial for the beginner to someone with years of experience.  Tons and tons of great information.  Highly recommend!"


Love the course!  Just started the build by doing the 'sketch’. It’s new territory for me so it will be quite a challenge, but I'm looking forward to it.”


“I just finished watching the series twice. The level of detail and knowledge is excellent and above and beyond anything available on the internet that I have came across.”

-Adam L.

"Absolutely beautiful!  I will be watching this course several times over as I start this knife."
