Here at wilder forge, I create and sell quality hand forged knives, tomahawks, fire steels, period cookware, and bushcraft gear. Each and every piece that comes out of my shop has been forged to shape by hand, on an anvil, with a hammer, the same way the smiths of old did it. My goal is to offer hand made goods, reminiscent of a time when things where not engineered to fail, and when things where still built, with pride in America. Items that are far too rare in today’s world.

When it comes to knives, hawks, and anything made to hold an edge, I settle for nothing but the best. I use some of the most popular steels on the market for such things. This includes, 1095 high carbon, O1 tool steel, and W1 tool steel. When I have the chance, will make a blade out of an antique file.

My many different types of strikers are made from W1, and throw great sparks!

Whether you are looking for a tool to take with you on a hiking trip deep into wild country, or to add to you reenacting kit, you need look no farther then Wilder Forge!

I will from time to time have products for sale on the website, but for the most part I work on commission. If you would like to place an order, ask about a custom order, or have any questions in general, feel free to contact me here:

See, it is I who created the blacksmith who fans the coals into flame and forges a weapon fit for its work.
