One of my other addictions besides blacksmithing is all that is rusty. I think rust looks great! There are sooooo many different shades of ocher and sienna and lovely reds and browns, its like the blood of the earth. Any time I see something with a good coating of rust all I can think is, “oh, how can I use that?”

First of nature based metal sculptures, this one inspired the many that came after it.

Off and running

Tomorrow I leave to go north and freeze my tropicalized tail off in Maryland at the Gichner Memorial Hammer-In, hosted by the folks at the Mid-Atlantic Smiths Association(MASA). I'll be demonstrating toolmaking and raising, along with a few other tidbits if time permits.


It's Here!!

It's here! My forge from NC TOOL CO. It's pretty much the most bad a** thing ever! I'm super stoked. And it's going to make this new year all the better. If you haven't seen or used a forge from NC TOOL, it's quality stuff. Highly recommended!

I made this knife for my brother and delivered it on Christmas day! It's made from a "Black Master" horseshoe rasp my Farrier friend threw my way (note the vertical file lines running the length of the blade). The handle is American Oak with brass pins. It's the first full tang, wooden handle I've attempted and it still requires a sealent.

The "Twitch" Fish and Game Knife

This is my first knife. My good friend Alex "Twitch" procured the first Anvil for Woodford Knife & Forge, so I felt it was only appropriate that the first blade to be struck on it be for him.


California Forging

| | | | | | | | | |

Hello everybody, I've been looking around here for a couple hours now and I'm pretty happy to find a site that brings so many talented metalsmiths together! I've just finished my service enlistment and have been forging my own knives and nick-nacks for about a year now. I would really like to work for a professional forge if there is work/help needed in the southern California area. Maybe you, or someone you know is in a situation to take on a hard worker and motivated learner? Thanks for reading, Happy New Year!
