Testimonials

Theory component of workshop was very informative with good powerpoint presentation, making it easy to understand different knife types, materials and sharpening techniques. Practical component was easy for me to get a grasp of with Nari's excellent instruction. Nari has a pleasing and friendly manner making you feel comfortable and providing a good environment for learning. 10/10

The class with Nari was amazing! I learnt so much theoretical and practical knowledge and can sharpen my knives now myself. Highly recommend the course for any chef or home cook. Also, Nari took the time to explain everything and got sure I understand it as well.

I’ve done Japanese knife sharpening classes before, but this was far better. The key thing is, it’s a small class. Mine only had two other people so you get a personalized attention. He goes into the theory and then you get hands on with Nari-sensei’s watching and guiding you. The whetstones were much better quality than my other class and you got much more time actually sharpening.
