Our Forge

Dragon’s Breath Forge is committed to creating the most technically and aesthetically pleasing items that we possibly can. To that end, we are constantly experimenting, researching, and collaborating with others to hone our craft.

Learn more about our individual smiths by visiting their biography pages; view our work in the Gallery!  Both are located in the top menu.

In addition to tools, blades, and armor, we also build decorative ironwork.  For our “softer” side (railings, sculpture), see Falling Hammer Productions.

Tutorials and Classes

We are currently offering public and private classes for those who are interested in learning more about the crafts that we practice. We offer instruction in Blacksmithing, Bladesmithing, Swordsmithing, Armoring,  and Repousse. Our shop is well equipped, and all four smiths are very knowledgeable.

Public Classes

If you are interested in signing up for one of our publicly offered classes please check the current availability at our FaceBook group, Dragon’s Breath Classroom. The majority of our available class times are listed here and it is the simplest way for us to keep track of class interest.

Weekday classes
We host students at our shop on weekdays beginning at 6pm for 3-hour sessions or 4-hour sessions.  These shorter sessions are a good way to ease into the craft, or break a larger project into more manageable stages.
Weekend classes
Classes of up to six hours can be held on Saturday or Sunday.  We also periodically schedule two-day classes for more involved projects, such as making kitchen knives or axes.
Private classes
Many people enjoy the experience of working with an instructor with a group of friends, and the best way to set up such classes is to contact us directly.  We can schedule Private Classes ranging from 3 to 14 students.  Large groups enjoy the best pricing and are usually the most fun, so ask your friends and family to join you!  To schedule a private class, contact us
At the present time we are not scheduling additional single or two-person classes due to an excessive workload.
Resources
You can get a glimpse of the equipment we have and the skills we can teach by watching some of our YouTube videos!

I mustache you a question about damascus…

When discussing various damascus patterns, smiths can use a wide variety of terms, some of which give evoke the look of the resulting pattern, others which detail the process, and others still which are mysterious, by intent or otherwise.  Damascus patterns that are named for their appearance might include “wolfs-tooth” and “feather”.  Among those named …
