Wat je gaat doen

We work with our guests to create a forged masterpiece.

The List Includes:
- Necklace: Mjölnir (Thors Hammer) or Cross
- Bracelet: straight or twisted
- Letters/Numbers (up to 5 digits)
- Hair Spike (doubles as a defensive weapon)
- Meat Hook for grilling
- Eating Spoon
- Ladle (cooking spoon)
- Fire Starter with Striker (camping)
- Bottle Opener

First, we'll crack on the forge and go over the basics while the material heats up.

Next is the hammering. The material will have to go back into the forge every so often for re-heating. While the material re-heats, we'll discuss forging methods, show n tell current projects, go over any questions, etc.

Lastly, we'll do final grinding, shaping and sanding. Then we continue to the smoothing and polishing process to remove any sharp edges.

Have a camera/device? Bring it with you and take all the pics/vids you’d like.

Approx times:
1 person = 1 1/2 to 2 hrs
2 ppl = 2 to 3 hrs
3 ppl = 3 to 4 hrs
4 ppl = 3 1/2+ hrs

Other items we co-create...
- Tomahawk
- Railroad Spike Knife
These items require an additional 1-2 hours on top of posted times above. Due to heat treat, tempering process & final sharpening. They are doable in smaller groups of 3 or less. 1@$35 or 2+@$30 each.

An old world ‘mom-n-pop’ forge shop brought to the 21st century.

We are a small forge and do everything by hand, arm & hammer style. We do not use patterns for knives and other items unless requested. The metal takes a life of its own and guides us. We create knives for various uses from large to small. We also make defensive weapons such as axes, tomahawks, as well as historical weapons for reenactment and practical use such as spearsheads, seaxes, langseaxes, arrowheads, swords, scabbards, etc… We also enjoy making artistic items such as fancy tampers, roses, leatherwork, & more.

Justin has mastered all kinds of art from black belt, to the art of war (OIF Army Veteran), to oil on canvas, to artisanal craftsmanship, Viking fighter and Viking historian, to forging pioneer arm and hammer style. A jack of all trades, master of none.

Waar je naartoe gaat

We live at the back end of a horseshoe road, so you may come into the street from either end. Cars usually go fast on the main road (663), just have the blinker on and you’ll be alright.

My family went for the experience and it was amazing! wonderful instruction and allowing us to personalize our knives was special. We learned so much and appreciate Justin and Adrianna's time. Great experience, highly recommend going if you have the chance.

What a fantastic experience. I don’t know what I expected but this was a blast! I learned and had great time wearing out the hammers! Thanks Justin and Adrianna for a terrific experience! Like the Terminator said, “I’ll be back!”

You will not regret booking with this amazing couple. Tons of experience and passion from Justin. Adriana is so genuine and warm. There was not a dull moment while my husband forged his tomahawk. The best part of this experience is we were able to bring our 5 y/o and 5 month old to watch dad forge metal.

Awesome experience for our family. Meeting a veteran and him teaching what he does. It was nice because he let us do the work, so we got the full experience.

I made the Tomahawk, and my husband thinks it's the coolest thing ;-) Great experience: I learned a lot, in a safe and comfortable atmosphere, and with pictures to show my friends. The hosts are such a great team (Thanks Justin and Adriana!). If you're coming through the area, don't miss this one!

Awesome experience! Justin & Adriana are great hosts and made sure everything was well communicated prior to the experience. They were accommodating of our needs, and super friendly and helpful. Couldn't recommend this experience more strongly!
