At Torchforge, I offer a variety of services including, but not limited to:

  • Blade sharpening and restoration work at the Jacksonville Farmer's Market from 9 AM to 2 PM on Sundays

  • Custom blades, ornamental metalwork, and small scale fabrication

  • High resolution custom etching of ferrous and non-ferrous metals

  • 3D printing and rapid prototyping including 2D and 3D CAD services

  • Specialized forging and casting operations ranging from damascus steel to exotic castable alloys

Additionally, I regularly publish and host an extensive amount of blacksmithing and metalworking tutorials ranging from the absolutely beginner to expert concepts and applications.


If you have any questions regarding metalworking in general or want a custom forged blade, feel free to Contact me anytime.


Because I value frugality - or rather, because I'm too cheap to pay more than $3.18 for hosting services annually - this website functions solely as a hub for my various endeavors. As such, the menu above will link you to my posts/pages/feed on other well-known websites including, but not limited to, Instagram, Imgur, Youtube, Facebook, Etsy, etc. Some day I will update this site to look more "modern" and "professional" (i.e. impossible to navigate) but today is not that day and neither is tomorrow.

Have a good one,

Some general tutorial updates and whatnot

Some new tutorials posted and old tutorials updated. Don't worry, this website design is still as shitty as ever and I'll get around to changing that never.
