An experienced and skillful sculptor, Dennis has been passing on his knife-making skills to hundreds of many people for over 17 years. "I'm always amazed at how quickly they have been able to work with a design they have drawn up and then transformed a piece of car spring into a purpose-made tool. Their delight with their handiwork is a thing of beauty too!"
