Oaks Bottom Forge believes in the creation of a product that stands the test of time, with beauty and functionality to be cherished as well as the practicality of everyday use.

Our team prides themselves on their commitment to using old world, free-style methods and to meticulously handcraft a knife that can be broadly passed down through the ages.


Our knives are crafted by hand. We hammer each blade by hand.  Each handle is cut, sanded and polished to perfection. So our knives take a little more time to build. But, because we take the time to build your heirloom in this way, you are guaranteed to receive a one-of-a-kind perfected piece of art.

With a passion to design art that is useful and has purpose, we also share our knowledge and skills to the community with a variety of classes instructed by skilled artisans in the craft, to insure that these skills will live as long as the handcrafted blades we create. 


Oaks Bottom Forge values our reputation and strive to create a rapport that will give our clients the satisfaction. What we promise is as solid as the blades we represent. We guarantee that from initial contact our clients are valued and become a member of our OBF family.

As a member of the community, it is important to us that our word is one that creates trust, respect, loyalty and accountability


We believe that hand crafted means just that. We build our knives using an Old World free hand style.  Using 01 high carbon tool steel, a forge of hard wood charcoal and with hammer and anvil; each of the 120 steps to finished product shows our pride in our product and pride in our technique, and that is revealed in our blades which our clients demand and expect.


Oaks Bottom Forge stands behind our product, and our company. We plan to be part of the community for a long time, and we commit ourselves to not only the integrity of our knives but the integrity of our craftsmanship.
