Visiting Chiang Mai? Why not visit a talented Thai Knife Maker and watch the process or get hands on yourself!?
Currently there is the opportunity to stay with Che Americano, a very lovably and kind knife maker, very close to central Chiang Mai. You can visit for a day to watch him at work, or stay over night and complete a 1-2 day crash course on how to make a knife from scratch. You may visit his home and submerse yourself in authentic Thai culture. Not only is Che a great knife maker, but he also makes a delicious cup of organic Thai coffee and is a very hospitable host!
Accommodations can be provided. Either stay in an open concept Thai wood cabin, with your tent/mosquito net or hammock, or stay indoors in a provided bed (room for 3).
Learn to make a Camp Knife from scratch. Design it yourself, or with Che's help. He will assist you along the way and direct your next step. A great teacher for beginners or experienced knife makers. More complex designs will require more time and resources. Please contact us to discuss.
Unwind at night with some great Thai food, drinks & refreshments.
Fall asleep to the sounds of crickets chirping and frogs singing.
This is a unique opportunity to visit a Thai Blacksmith at his home shop. This is a pay what you want opportunity. Please take into consideration the overnight accommodations, the food provided and the materials and time used in the knife making process. The recommended cost for a 1-2 day knife making class varies, but starts at 2000-2500+ baht (depending on knife/materials)
