Blacksmith course in Vallorbe in Swiss Jura

In the heart of the historic Grandes Forges district, which has been used for more than 500 years, put on the blacksmith's leather apron and use period tools to forge your own “brut de forge” knife with the help of a real cutler .

Since 1495 this district has been the burning heart of Vallorbe, "Cité du Fer" in the Swiss-Jura. Listed as a historic monument, this exceptional and picturesque medieval district has housed a museum dedicated to the iron industry and the railway since 1980. The latter immerses us in the history of iron and reveals the beauty of the work of the old craftsmen and blacksmiths of Vallorbe.

For a day, the blacksmith who accompanies you in this forging course guides you with his knowledge of steel, his theory and practice of forging knives, his theory and practice of heat treatments to finally help you make a raw knife of simple forge.
