A Canadian Artisan Blacksmith

Welcome to Daelen Forge, my Artisan Blacksmith shop. All works from this shop are hand forged by me, Shaun, in our home family forge in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada (established 2015). At times my son's will join me in the forge around their schooling, and my wife, Shelley, works on the business side of the forge managing all of those aspects. We are truly a family business.

In addition to my online shops, I participate in a number of highly juried shows in the Edmonton area with my creations including Signatures Shows (Butterdome, Indie Handmade), and The Witchery Market. My work can also be found in galleries and curated shops.

As a fulltime Artisan Blacksmith since 2015 I specialize in combining a love of history, mythology, ritual, and the incredible powers of fire and iron. Each piece is meticulously hand forged in my shop by me, using techniques that are often centuries old, and many tools that have been pounding steel for over 100 years. One of my most cherished items is an anvil that is over 115 years old, and was used in the local jail where my grandfather used to work. I love this powerful connection to history and embrace it in my craft through my tools, reclaimed steels, ancient techniques and more.

I specialize in timeless creations, such as altar and ritual tools, a gamer series, storied knives and axes, personal accessories, and home d茅cor items. As a professional blacksmith, I consider it my honour to work in this ancient profession creating my art. Combining the power of fire and my skills as a blacksmith, the result is unique hand forged pieces that speak of our ancestors but in designs that reflect our modern essence.

We have honoured this long history of blacksmiths with the name Daelen, an old English name for a mythical blacksmith with supernatural powers.

Daelen Forge started in 2015 and to this day we create everything in our small home forge using great intention and ritual, the same as we have done from the very first time I hit red hot metal. Each item is handmade by me using both new and recycled materials. Every piece is made, one at a time, with great attention to detail. As they are hand forged and hammered, all of our items are unique and special, no two items will ever be exactly the same. We take pride in finishing every piece to the highest level of quality.

Thank you so much for taking the time to learn about me and my art. If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out.

Frequently asked questions
Shipping

Unless otherwise noted, all items are in stock and ready to ship. We dispatch all items within 8 business days. Shipping will be either through Canada Post or Courier (UPS, FedEx, Purolator, DHL, etc.) and will ALWAYS HAVE TRACKING. Rush delivery is often available. Simply message us for a quote and availability.

NOTE: Due to volume issues with the couriers and shippers during the holiday 2021 season, longer delivery times are to be expected, and will continue to lengthen throughout the holiday season. Please allow extra time for delivery. Tracking will always be provided so you can check on the delivery status of your orders.

Care instructions

All our items are hand forged from iron and steel. It will arrive with a protective coating to prevent rust. Depending on the purpose of the item, regular maintenance of this coating may be necessary to preserve your item for generations of use. The description should note what type of protective coating has been used. With all iron creations it is very important that you do not expose them to water or any moisture as this will lead to rusting. It is also important to not expose your creations to open flame or extreme heat as this will also damage your piece. Always ensure you are using your creations for their intended purpose and using care. If you have any questions about the care of your Daelen Forge Original, please reach out.

The Nature of Hand Forged

All of our items are hand forged by me in our family forge in Canada. Due to the nature of the forging process, there will be slight variations in your piece from the listing photos. Fire painted items will have a variety of colours throughout the piece (silvers, golds, bronze, blues and purples) creating a unique rainbow in each creation. No two items will ever be exactly the same. Please don't hesitate to reach out prior to your purchase if you have any questions.

Custom and personalised orders

Due to high level of demand, my books are now closed to all custom order, bulk and wholesale order requests. I am constantly making new designs and exploring new concepts in my art. Please follow my social media as I make a lot of one of a kind or limited production pieces.
