ABOUT US

We are a forge run by a Veteran family. We specialize in traditional knives with a bit of Texas history incorporated into each piece. We use recycled and reclaimed materials to make beautiful, heirloom-quality works of art with stories of their own. When one calls to you, you will not be able to resist making it part of your life story.

Once a month we dedicate our workshop and our time to Reforged, the Veteran run non-profit started by our family in 2018, to help Veterans and First Responders with PTSD.

Reviews

Had a really awesome time taking the one-day knife-making class with my girlfriend!
First found these guys through their handmade knife shop in Gruene (amazing handmade blades for sale there) and found out they run classes, both on-site there and at a home-based forge closer to San Antonio... My girlfriend had a broken arm, and they even had the tools and means to accommodate her so she could still finish a blade, so don’t worry too much about your entry-level skills or physical strength,
if you’re willing you are able!
