Welcome to Heritage Forge

Welcome to Heritage Forge

Come visit us at the Homestead Craft Village and watch our live blacksmithing demonstrations. Browse our online galleries of custom work, heirloom tools and other hand-forged products.

Hand-Forged Tools

All of our axes are forged in the traditional manner, starting with a block of low carbon steel for the body and forge-welding in a high carbon steel insert for the edge. This results in an axe that is durable and holds an edge well.
