Ironlord Forge Artist blacksmithDue to rising costs, for the 1st time ever I have to make a small increase to the price of my courses. Don't worry it doesn't apply to those who book before the 1st of October 2016 but after that it'll be an extra $25per person/per day.
My name is Wayne Saunders and Ironlord Forge is my business. Although this started as a hobby, I've been a full time Blacksmith/Knifemaker since 2003 & now have my Trade Blacksmith qualifications as well as being a full member of the Australian Knifemakers Guild. I'm based in Australia on the Mid North Coast of New South Wales, just 4 hours north of Sydney. Everything produced by Ironlord Forge (knives, axes, decorative ironwork, jewellery, tools and more) is hand made by me personally and I'm proud of my growing reputation for high quality blacksmith work.
I have a simple motto:
If I wouldn't be happy to own it myself it's not good enough to sell to a customer!
The online shop is a place to purchase the unique items I've created from my own imagination. As I'm always coming up with new ideas, keep a regular eye on this section. All pictures will be of the actual item for sale so what you see is what you get!
Custom blacksmithing jobs make up a large percentage of my work, so if you have an idea I'm happy to bring it to life. I can also work with you to design something from scratch and create a truly unique piece. It could be anything from an unusual or hard to get tool through to that knife you've always wanted. Maybe it's a special gate or sculpture you want; whatever it is, no job is too big or small so don't hesitate to get in touch. Delivery on most items can be arranged worldwide for a very reasonable price too.
Check out the gallery section to see just some of the wide variety of metalwork I've produced so far.
Ever wanted to have a go at blacksmithing or knifemaking? I'm happy to teach classes 1 on 1 or 2 so you can get that personal experience of creating your own masterpiece!
