Creative backstage with a master blacksmith

Master Jože Krmelj blows his hammer in a smithy with almost 150 years of tradition. In one of the most famous blacksmiths, each individual tool is made by hand from the highest quality steel and he also makes a wooden handle for it himself.

In Log nad Škofjo Loko, only a 15-minute drive from the town of Škofja Loka, get to know the family tradition of forging tools. Take a look at the smithy and exhibition gallery with forged products – from the most famous “Krmelj’s” axes to superbly designed Damascus knives. Jože will also turn the hammer for you in his workshop and show you how to forge by hand.

In the summer months, permanent dates are open for handicraft experiences. Out of summer time we adjust the time for your handicraft experience to your wishes.
