Blacksmith Elmer Roush makes hand forged functional hand tools, weapons and implements from 10th Century Viking to 18th Century American styles. Each piece is individually forged from steel or wrought iron bar stock, and some are pattern welded. During the hot forging, Elmer precisely defines the shape and proportion of the item. Then, to varying degrees, the pieces are refined with cold work at the bench using filing, chasing, sanding to give extra embellishment.
The pieces in the ‘For Sale’ category have a button with a link to PayPal. “Please be assured that the items that I am showing in the pictures here are the actual ones that are shipped out. I pretty much forge pieces one at a time or in very small runs so I can show you the actual pieces.”
