If a product offered by us is not as described, your sole remedy is to return it in unused condition.



At Metal Monkey Knives, I take great care that students are properly instructed in the safe handling of tools, machinery and materials and that relevant PPE is worn throughout the course. However, knife making bears some risks and injuries such as cuts, grazes or burns can happen no matter how cautiously we work. 

While I do take responsibility for offering a safe work environment Metal Monkey Knives does not take any responsibility should injuries occur.

The aim of my knifemaking courses is to provide the students with an insight into the creation of a chef knife and give them a hands on experience. Generally, the students will have a lot of interaction in the forging and part of the grinding, while I take over at critical stages in order to make sure that we produce a knife that meets my standards. The general motto for the students is: You can attempt every step of the process but you do not have to do anything that you feel uncomfortable with.
