Carved + Hoffman Blacksmithing

We are excited to announce a collab with a very talented american blacksmith, Liam Hoffman.

We designed a real wood case, featuring an artistic rendering of a carbon steel axe forged by Liam Hoffman. The artwork is laser etched on a sheet of genuine mahogany wood and finished by hand.

Liam is someone we have followed for a while and he has an incredible talent. Check out his website to see some examples of his work and even buy one of his axes!

Liam was also the youngest winner ever of Forged in Fire on the History Channel!

More info about Liam

“Growing up in the rural Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina I was accustomed to playing outside in the woods and creeks, opening up my mind to creativity. I have always been very hands-on and creative. I would make paper dye with wild violets and mold bowls from clay dug out of the creek banks. Later on I taught myself how to macramé and learned the art of Bonsai. My mother and her family are very artistic and creative with design. My father is a hard working farmer. I believe I have both these attributes, and that when these traits are combined they fit perfectly the description of a blacksmith: hard work mixed with creative spirit.”

Here are some photos of the case!
