It’s Friday. A good time to share what’s new.
For the last 4 years, I’ve been working out of my home workshop, and it has been a wonderful experience. As my designs developed and became more complex, I’ve found that I needed to grow with tools and processes. Space in my workshop did not grow with the addition of those tools.
I’m proud to share that over 2 weeks or so, I’ve been moving my workshop in addition to working on blades.
My new location is a much larger work space that allows me to bring all my crafting into the same space (forging, handles, adornment, honing, leather work, etc).
This has been one of the biggest boosts to my productivity, and many of the new projects on the horizon are becoming a reality, while existing work is getting done much, much faster (with noticeable improvements in quality and joy in the crafting).
Before long, I hope to add a very humble showroom, and for the first time ever, invite guests to get their blade in person. I have blades to make, but when I feel responsibly caught up, I’ll be making these improvements and announcing.
My new workshop is in an industrial area, and I do believe I’m the only blacksmith among all the automotive craftsmen…. makes for good neighborly coffee chat.
Looking forward to sending out more fine steel, and hope you have a great weekend.
