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.

We Offer:
Historical Hand-Forged Artifacts
