    Our 7 and 9 year olds made knives last year and my husband and I made them this year! Both experiences were excellent! All of the staff are very friendly, safety minded, and knowledgeable in the knife-making process! You can tell they enjoy maling knives everyday! We will definitely be back!

    This was the single best experience of our Gatlinburg/Pigeon Forge trip! The blacksmiths were so helpful and patient, not just with my 6 yr old, but also with me-because I felt like a 6 yr old again! They answered all our questions while teaching us about their craft in the safest manner possible. Now both my son and I have souvenirs andemories that will last a lifetime! Thank you so much!

Amazing I would give it 10 stars if I could! The staff here were all great to work with! We were able to pound out our own knives.. We had the pleasant surprise to meet Robby Bowman. He was willing to tell us great tips for forging and got to see his beautiful knifes he made.

Went there with my son and nephew. Once we all held and saw the railroad spike knife we had to have it not only did we all make one, but had a blast doing it! It was an amazing time, we plan on coming back to vacation again, here next year …More

We had a large group (11 of us) ranging from ages 7-50. None of us had ever done anything like it before and it was a HUGE hit with everyone! I have 6 kids (ages 7, 8, 10, 12, 14, & 16) and all of them said it was their favorite part of spring break!
