The images below open as larger versions with a link to the full post about the piece below each.

I make hand forged functional hand tools, weapons and implements from 10th Century Viking Axes to 18th Century American tomahawks and in all sorts of other directions.  My main focus in blacksmithing is making tools for other people to use.

I forge things one at a time or in very small runs so I can show you the actual items offered for sale, I have also been numbering my work as I make it for a while now, so you’ll see that in the information too.  Each piece is individually forged from steel or wrought iron bar stock, and some are pattern welded. During the hot forging I define 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.

Enjoy!!
