NICELY made (not tiny pipe tools that you have to fumble with) and quickly shipped. Good seller communication too, as always. I highly recommend this seller and his shop! The photo shows the hand forged pipe tools hanging from the mast of a circa 1915 viking ship smoking stand that was made in Germany. They look like they came with it!

The Fire Pit Poker is exactly as described and feels like it can take the wear and tear of an outdoor implement.

The Smithy - Home of StormCloak Forge
In early spring of 2016, work began on the restoration of what is home of StormCloak Forge. Located in Mequon, WI, the building was originally built in 1837 by Ephram Woodworth who pioneered the property. Ephram had heard that the Green Bay trail was going to be built next to the land and decided that it would be a good place to settle.
The two-story stone and mortar construction had nine windows and two doors. It is believed that Ephram lived in this house until he completed the larger home on the property. After which, the building served as a workshop and then summer kitchen for the farm. The building was used to make baby formula in the 1900's and later as a butch shop. It fell into disrepair and ruin. The east wall was torn down to provide a stone border around a flower garden. The roof collapsed in as well.
Work began with the restoration of the stone and mortar walls. Every inch was chiseled by hand to remove the deteriorated and loose stone and mortar. Then, a mortar that matched as closely as possible to the original Egyptian mortar was used to lovingly restore the walls. Next the floor was dug out and a new concrete floor was poured to handle the rigors of daily hammering and smithing. The 4th wall was rebuilt using those same stones from the garden. A modern roof was installed along with a chimney.
The final touches came with custom cedar doors popular around the mid 1800’s and then a more modern flare with lighting in the form of Edison bulbs. StormCloak Forge has a home!
I have been smithing since 1996 and can never get enough. The idea of combining the four ancient elements into an object that will be around long after I am gone fills me with a sense of wonder.

Frequently asked questions
Custom and personalized orders
I am very happy to do custom orders. Just specify what you would like on your order. If it's an item I don't have listed, please feel free to contact me.
Most of my items are finished and then sealed with Helmsman spar urethane to make them safe, durable, and worry-free.
Some items are left with the "natural" finish and, while all of the finishes I use are meant to treat and protect wrought iron and steel from rust, those items may show some tarnish after a while. When this occurs, buffing with a soft cloth will bring the shine right back.
I am happy to entertain wholesale deals. Contact me any time to discuss.
