A knife made by student of this class in 2022

I attended a 5-day one on one knifemaking class with Gullinbursti - Petr Florianek.  It was an extremely educational experience, working for 8 hours each day, I really realized what it means to make a knife in his style.  I was directed and followed step by step, Petr first showed me how he did each process and then he let me try it out, even with test pieces in the case of engraving and carving.   So I had time and opportunity to practice before working on the actual knife.  I was helped in particular in the design phases and in most dangerous ones for those inexperienced like me. His willingness to teach and his kindness made this experience, although challenging, very enjoyable
