Five Shield Forge is based on the island of O’ahu, Hawai’i. The smith began his training in 2014 with a one week course that started an incurable need to know more, like the inevitable pull of a strong tide. The Forge’s mission is to create high-quality blades in an educational space for creative metallurgic craftsmanship. At the moment, the smith does his work on the beautiful beaches of paradise, with sunsets and rolling surf as his backdrop.
