An absolute honor to participate in such a patriotic event and to collibaraticely celebrate freedom with my life long friends (all the way back to grade school!!!)

Just wish I could make it to TX to celebrate with you (still considering a road trip for sure!!!)

Here is a collaboration item for our silent auction between our life long friends Indy Hammered Knives and Moonshine Ridge . This sweet basket comes with a Indy hammered Knives custom hand forged knife (with collectors box & leather sheath), t shirt, hat and your own copy on the United States Constitution. As if that is enough let's add 2 bottles of hand crafted premium spirits to it.

So after last week I’m still in deep reflection....

This weekend was most refreshing and at the end of it all, I am finding it hard to describe the depth of my gratitude.

Every day I get to make things that matter with my hands, doing work with purpose. I also get the opportunity to honestly and whole heartedly chase my dreams.

Somedays the dreams chased matter more and today is one of them. This sentiment is for someone very close to me.

The Revelator came to be in a story of joint revelation and found it to be very fitting for this post.

One of the coolest places in Indy and one of the coolest delivery vehicles as well! Ran some 1095 down to James at Indy Hammered Knives this afternoon! They offer some amazing blades and knife making classes behind at The Indy Forge, great ideas for Christmas (wink wink!)

That's a wrap. This class went by fast from how focused and on point these two were. They definitely had their nose to the grindstone, or rather grinding belt in this case.
Have a great Labor Day weekend and we will see you next time!

Thank you to Coal Ironworks for their 12 TON mini press to use at the forge. While "mini" is in the title, its power is anything but mini. It can press just about any piece of steel that you throw at it. And it is good for making billets of damascus steel like Mike McGill is in this video.

If you are interested in this press or any like it then head on over to our friends at https://coaliron.com

Happy Independence Day - July 4th, 2020

Happy Independence Day America!!

Today is significant indeed, however now more than ever, Independence, Freedom and Liberty are celebrated every day here at Indy Hammered Knives.

Beginning today, July 4th, 2020 we will play the Star Spangled Banner over our vintage PA system for our sweet town at 8:05a.m. EST every day, 365 days a year. See the the debut below!!!

Why, because it is important. And, only after a dear friend introduced me to this patriotic practice in the sweet and small town of Burkesville, KY (thank you Renee Kelley) that is why we join them collectively at 8:05a.m. Never forget, it's all about

"WE THE PEOPLE"

Just think if "we" did this in reverence together as a Country??What if in the early parts of our every days we are first reminded of this?

Little steps can equal many miles over time.

God Bless you all and God Bless America!

If you aren’t too busy Friday swing down to Acton and check our his grand opening of Indy Hammered Forge, a maker space for all things knives! #metalsupermarkets #indy #indyhammeredknives #indyhammeredforge #blanksgalore
Carving pumpkins requires craftsmanship of unequaled quality.
Had the opportunity to do some camping up in the UP of Michigan this past week and while we were at the Tahquamenon Falls I took the opportunity to snap a shot of my IHK Sojourner with the falls in the background. Enjoy it everyone!
James- cannot thank you enough for making such a great boot knife for me! I know I asked for an “unconventional” boot knife blade but find myself using it daily! Thank you!!
Starting to put the curio cabinet together. Got my 3 Indy Hammered Knives in the display. Tried to do a close up but had lighting issues.
I'll probably keep it in the truck for a month or two. Will take that long at least to lose the urge to look at it constantly...
Have you ever wanted to learn about knifemaking? Looking for an heirloom gift for a loved one? Check out Indy Hammered Knives. James offers knife making classes and sells some really cool products out of the forge! Great guy who we love working with here Metal Supermarkets! Sign up for a class today!
Very happy with my experience as a student at Indy hammered knives. Have a beautiful knife and new skills to go with it.
