What others say about the courses

  • Matic

    The course itself surprised me, despite the fact that I am wathcing many YouTube channels on the forging topic, I learned many new things. The course was performed perfectly, one on one, so that the master could dedicate himself to me hundred percent. Safety was provided with lectures and, of course, safety equipment. I definitely recommend the course to anyone who likes to create something with their own hands. You will not be disappointed.

  • Blaž

    The experience and knowledge I have gained from making my (Celtic) knife are simply priceless and unique. We were two students in the forging course. Already while drinking coffee, Mr. Tomaž gave us a lot of theoretical knowledge about blacksmithing, especially how blacksmithing has evolved throughout history, what hammers are used for forging, what different anvils are used for, etc. I have to admit that it is a bit longer than we had imagined, from theory to practice. Thanks to Mr. Tomaž, who guided and advised us throughout the whole process selflessly and above all with nerves of steel, we have a knife of which I am very proud.

  • Robert

    I also took part in forging course with Tomaž and I can give only compliments. I was especially impressed by his professionalism and eagerness to help. The course is perfectly designed and organized. Tomaž is ready to share his rich knowledge and experience in this field and answer all my questions. I highly recommend it.

    I had a blast on Tomaž's forging course. Besides being really professional, Tomaž is also a person, who makes forging fun and easy. It was something completely new for me and with Tomaž's help I've been able to forge myself a beautiful knife. One of the best experiences I've had!

  • Arne

    The blacksmith workshop was excellent. I recommend others attend the blacksmith workshop so that they can make knives at the beginning. I had a great time, so I hope to go to TomTek again. I learned how to make a knife and that you have to let the knife cool for a while and how to bend the tip and that there are several types of anvils, and I would like to have my own forge.

  • Blaž

    I received forging course as a birthday gift. I didn't know what to expect from the course, but I've always admired the craft. I received the 2-day course and I was so positively surprised. Tomaž guided me through the whole process, from forging, to sharpening and also making a wooden handle. I'm so proud that I've managed to forge myself a knife! It's really an unique experience and Tomaž is the best blacksmith to guide you through the process.
