Quex Craft Village: The Bearded Pig Forge

Having a long-standing interest in the history and craft of blacksmithing, Spike decided to pursue it as a career full time after doing a basic course with Ross Berry at Kaos Blacksmiths. This gave him the foundation to be able to develop my skills and quickly got his own forge and anvil, getting to work making both the items I had been taught and practicing developing my own style. Over several years now he has continued to develop these methods and teach himself more about this fascinating craft, expanding his knowledge and practical skills, including branching into mixed medium work such as the knives he produces..
