Next to the workshop there is an exhibition space and showroom, where all of the products on display, can be tested and purchased. Guided tours and demonstrations are organised for groups of up to eight people, school classes and interested individuals. The tour includes a narrative about the heritage of the local crafts, tools and materials, followed by demonstrations of various techniques (grinding, sharpening, polishing, quenching, forging and engraving). The customers are invited to engrave a symbol to their metal pieces according to their preferences, and test their knives using an instrument for measuring hardness by Rockwell.
