I am currently working through the free class: Complete Knife Skills with Brendan McDermott, so far I love this class! I will post a detailed review after I complete it. I am only part way through the third lesson and have already learned so much!
Level: Beginner and intermediate or anyone wanting to brush-up on their knife skills
Structure: The class is divided into five lessons that range in length from 8 minutes to 43 minutes. The first lesson is an introduction to Craftsy, so really there are four lessons on knife skills.
