Hand forged custom blades

I’m a young Portuguese sculptor and I’m paving the path to become a professional bladesmither. I recently graduated in Sculpting at Belas Artes university, Lisbon (2015). Since I’m fascinated by flames and passionate by forging, after graduating I decided to build my own forge from scratch in the backyard of my house. Tons of old books and internet videos thought me and guided me in this ancient art of which I did not knew anything about. The results, after one year of continuous learning and working, are now presented in this site. My goal is to be able to make a living by crafting custom made knives and swords on demand. I’ll be publishing and advertising my work in this site to reach a broader audience. If you are interested in acquiring any of my pieces please contact me using the contact page or through my facebook page. Meanwhile, I hope you enjoy it as much as I do and keep on the lookout for my future metalcrafts.
