ABOUT ME

About Me

As a fully qualified blacksmith with over a decade’s experience in original commissions, restoration of existing ironwork and commercial projects, I offer a wide range of skills to fit your needs, whether it’s onsite welding and fitting or a completely unique bespoke ironmongery.

I also weld most metals and can temper and harden tools.

I produce handmade work in a range of materials including iron, steel, stainless steel, copper and brass, combining modern and traditional forging techniques with a full spectrum of finishes including painted, waxed and gilded. This is designed and built bespoke to fit your needs. In addition to bespoke items, I hold a stock of smaller items for original gifts and presents.

Please do not hesitate to contact me to discuss your ideas and needs.

Commissioning Bespoke Ironmongery

My aim at Eitri Forge is to combine the knowledge of raw materials together with the experience of traditional handcrafting skills and employment of modern technologies, in order to deliver the finest quality products.

I work with other craftsmen and craftswomen to combine mixed media such as wood and leather making Eitri Forge able to offer completely unique solutions for your needs.

I aim to work to the highest standards from initial concept and design right the way through to completion and the final touches, including offering a follow-up service to ensure your ironmongery is kept in prime condition.

All of these elements coupled with my passion and attention to detail will bring your project to life.

If you would like to commission a bespoke piece of work, then please don’t hesitate to get in contact. I will guide you through the whole process to ensure that you get your perfect piece of ironmongery.
