From horseshoe to knife.

A buddy of mine recommended Lawless Forge to me after he attended one of the classes with his colleagues. I’m huge on experience gifts so I booked a private horseshoe knifemaking class for my boyfriend and four of his friends. Needless to say, they had an absolute blast, and I highly recommend Lawless Forge as the perfect experience gift for all friends and family!

“A good time was had by all, brothers bonding in the heat of the forge; with hammers and tongs and aprons and gloves. We moved iron and etched into our minds memories not soon forgot and into our hearts the love of the brotherhood of men. Amen.” — Greg
