There is a film aired to explained the history. Location is good - less than 10min walk from harbour or there is a bus stop just in front. Can get some hands on knife assembly experience if one wishes.

We’ve taken guests here a few times but this was the first time we booked the ‘make your own knife’ session. The two pre-teens LOVED it - the instructor was helpful and they were very hands on in the process. You can only make one...More
