Red Barn Forge - "Equipping Mountain Men"
Products
Updated 9/6/2014




Also check out the "Current Specials" page for more modern outdoor use offerings.

Most everything we sell on this page is based on an early American theme or style. While we try to be authentic as possible, we don't always make everything 100% historically accurate. We might come close, but unless it is advertised a "replica" of a historical item, then it's not.  Most all the products are made right here in the shop. I mostly run the business by myself so I may not always update things promptly. So sometimes product may be out of stock. If that is the case, we will inform you asap and return payment. If it's for a gift, deployment of Military personnel, guided  hunting trip, TV, Movie, reenactment event, etc,- PLEASE let me know at the time of order so that I can make sure we meet your deadline or not. Please email for more information on any of the products if needed.

SHIPPING IS CALCULATED ON ALL ITEMS IN THE US ONLY!
-ALL ORDERS SHIPPED **OUTSIDE** THE U.S. MUST BE CALCULATED BY RBF AND BILLED BY US THROUGH PAY PAL BEFORE WE SHIP. THE SHOPPING CART WILL NOT DO THIS AUTOMATICALLY. There have been 3 buttons added in the cart for Canadian Customer orders. Please check whichever one is appropriate for the size flat rate box we ship to you. Thanks.

***Please Note: We have become popular enough that many items are currently marked "Out of Stock". However we do make new items daily. If you like to know when an item is "In stock", send us an email with a list of what you would like to see "In stock". We will add it to our work order and notify you when item(s) come back in stock for purchase.

ALSO IMPORTANT: As of 6-5-14, we did not have a policy regarding refunds. We no longer offer refunds for newly purchased handcrafted items sold after 6-5-14. Our new policy is strictly "exchange only" of an equal or like value. If this policy is not acceptable to you, please do not order. Thank you for supporting our family business.
