Announcement   Ox Brand Forge is the ULTIMATE in BADASSERY

I have been working with metals, wood, and leather for over fourty years. I've designed and produced custom tools, knives, leather sheaths and bags. I even had the awesome opportunity to manufacture the knife used by actor Leo Rosse in the film Maniac Cop 2 and was published in Knives catalog.

Today, I love to spend my time creating full size knifes and axes, unique and crazy jewelry for those who are just as unique and crazy, and BBQ tools for the backyard chef with a yen for the extreme in BBQ ware.

This is an amazing looking and very well crafted knife. When I'm not wearing it, it will be displayed instead of sitting in my jewelry box. Shipping was fast and the knife nicely packaged. I'm very happy to have found your shop. Thank you!

About

I love the smell of metal

I guess my first stab at metallurgy began during down-times in the military. My buddies called me crazy when I would build a small fire and melt down aluminum flare casings. I would then carve out shapes in the dirt, pour in the molten liquid and create all kinds of bizarre shapes. After the military, I learned how to make knives, using the stock-removal method, thus combining my love for metal and edged weapons.

My current work started a few years ago. I began by cold-working steel into one-of-a-kind barbecue tool sets (grilling is another passion!). Then I bought my first forge and anvil. My abilities grew as I taught myself with blacksmithing books, hands-on seminars, and online tutorials...then the variety of my BBQ tool sets went crazy.

It seemed only natural to follow my BBQ sets with an array of miniature knives and axes that you can wear as a statement piece. My miniature cleavers and chef knives are a nod to my love for cooking.

I work mostly with mild steel and some stainless steel and copper, and all my handles are made from re-purposed wood. Additionally, I contribute a yearly in-kind donation to Spina Bifida Association of Northeastern New York for their Silent Auction.

For me, hand forging steel is an opportunity for challenge and self-expression. I love creating things that others will treasure. I hope you enjoy my work as much as I enjoy creating it!
