I’m a artist blacksmith, my office is in Abbots Langley, just north of Watford in Hertfordshire. I mainly work in a forge in Bushey, just to the south of Watford, also in Hertfordshire. I will make anything that involves forged / hot metal, such as a kitchen knife, decorative sword or axe, commissioned work or bottle openers.
Many of the items that I forge are made from recycled materials. It is very strongly tied to my practise to use recycled steels as much as possible especially when meaning tools for myself to use in my further practise. This is not because in the modern world there are no steels that are more advanced in their molecular make up, nor because I believe that the steels I use in recycling are superior to the modern equivalent.
