About Us (4-27-14)
Hello and welcome to our website.
I'm Dave, Owner and operator of Red Barn Forge. I have been a craftsman for 25 years. I do bladesmithing, blacksmithing, leather, kydex, wood, and jewerly work. In a former company I had designed and fabricated equipment for use by Law Enforcement & Military. Currently I celebrate early American crafts of all kinds in my work. I'm also now filling needs for experienced Bushcrafters.
I'm primarily centered around making basic tools such as tomahawks, flint strikers, and knives from Colonial to Fur Trade eras. I no longer offer custom work as it interferes with my personal work and my family time. We do however offer prototyping and manufacturing services to other companies.
I have 2 children, one of whom has Autism. We raise animals, food, and my daughter has a "regular" job, and school. So everyday is a full day for us as a family. My family helps with the business whenever possible.
I'm very passionate about my work and making my customers happy. When we
say that we appreciate your business, we sincerely mean it. I'm very
grateful to you for supporting mine and other families and RBF partners
through our business.
We also support other talented craftspeople and resell their products from all over the US. In fact in January 2014, we hired our first employee to help us stay on top of orders, help with sales, and fill in where needed. We really appreciate having the additional help!
