  • Handmade Knives

    We hand make a range of knives to suit any purpose; all manner of culinary/kitchen knives and cleavers; hunting, fishing and utility knives; axes and tomahawks; ceremonial and dress knives, daggers and the occasional sword.

    All our knives are 100% hand made on site here at Mother Mountain Forge.


  • Courses

    Here at Mother Mountain Forge we run courses in knife making, blacksmithing, axe making, and many others. I love what I do and I started teaching myself smithing because I found the process fascinating. But it was a long and slow journey to teach myself over the last 16 years.

We welcome visitors to our workshop, so if you are in the area come by and say hi and see Iain in action. Our workshop is on our home property, so we are always here, and we aim to be in the workshop 4 days a week. As we run a farm, family and have other community commitments, those days are flexible to fit into our lifestyle, never the same from week to week. Usually though, we are closed on Mondays and Tuesdays and open Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. Weekends by arrangement. So just call ahead to be sure the workshop will be open on the day you wish to visit. But if the closed sign is on the gate, please give us a call anyway and we may be able to arrange something.
