Elmer Roush's blacksmithing hammer is pictured in use on the front cover of Lorelei Sims' book ‘The Backyard Blacksmith’.
We’re building a new version of this site in WordPress that has my current work and will have a gallery of the older pieces. It is live at www.elmerroush.com as well as these pages. Thanks for your patience
Elmer Roush has been studying blacksmiths’ forging skills from 10th Century Viking to 18th Century Colonnial America. He has built up a unique repertoire of skills enabling him to recreate historically accurate hand-forged artifacts shown on this site: dividers, calipers, early locks, kitchen utensils and broilers, and a whole host of "new old tools" that can be used today - adzes, hammers, billhooks and froes to name a few.
Each of Elmer Roush's tools is stamped with the "E.Roush" stamp.
