Fractal Burning at its best

Our New “Burnt Impressions”

At HoJ Forge, all of our Damascus is hand forged with just a hammer and anvil.  We do not use presses, or power hammers.  It takes us a while longer to make it, but it assures high quality forge welds that can get missed when using equipment that speeds up the process to much,

We spend a lot of time in the scrap yards, finding things that are just rusting away to nothing.  When possible, we bring them to the shop and try to give them a new purpose and a new life, like this cork screw made from an old rusty wrench

Scrap yards are our friends

Don’t let it Just Rust Away

Bottle openers are fun and relaxing way to start a forging session.  We’re always trying out new ideas and sometimes they come out pretty cool.

Who knew bottle openers could be cool?
