Full description
Work as an apprentice to a master blacksmith on this 4-hour activity and learn to create a unique knife for yourself. Start off with a pickup at your hotel before the ride to the blacksmith’s workshop.

On arrival you’ll be shown the tools you'll be working with and taught basic safety practices.

Feel like a true blacksmith making weapons for kings of times past. In this instance, however, you will be making a special blade for yourself. You have several options for your blade: a machete, sickle, hoe, or knife – or you can upgrade to a knife with a deer horn hilt.

This hands-on class is the perfect way to learn a new skill while also creating a memorable souvenir.
Includes
  • Guided knife-making class
  • All necessary equipment
  • Round-trip transportation from your central Luang Prabang hotel
  • Live commentary in English
