I'm a part time bladesmith and owner of this website. I've been making blades for around 5 or 6 years now, though my time is very limited so I don't get to produce like I'd want to, trying to fix that however. Aside from bladesmithing I delve into some other forms of blacksmithing (ornamental work, decorative hooks, steel roses, tools, etc). I also weld (arc, MIG, TIG, Oxy Acetylene), I've worked as a professional welder doing ornamental "ironwork" (stair rails, hand rails, fences, gates, etc) and do other fabrication work. Used to be pretty heavily involved with combat, hand to hand, knife, engilsh/german longsword, other medieval forms of combat, etc, but as of late I've had too much on my plate to really keep up with it.
I've created this site in part to try and promote my work and my name, sell a few blades to help pay for things, etc, but also as an educational resource for the craft of bladesmithing. So welcome to the site, and look forward to sharing the craft with everyone.
