Thorson Forge serves Blade Enthusiasts worldwide from their forge located in Shelton, Washington, U.S.A.

Hand Forged. Always!

Every blade created at Thorson Forge starts life as an unassuming piece of metal that, like any young hero, has yet to fulfil its destiny… Dale repeatedly heats, bends, hammers, and grinds it until he is satisfied with its shape and durability. When the forging process is finished, he polishes and sharpens each blade until it is razor sharp and ready for battle.

Please Note – Due to the growing popularity of Thorson Hand Forged blades, custom orders currently required 3 – 4 months to complete.

Thorson Forge axes and tomahawks are individually forged into stunning pieces of functional art. They are a useful as they are beautiful, and they will never let you down. Whether you need an axe for chopping, splitting, or felling, this category has a blade for you.

Thorson Forge hatchets and tomahawks are designed to cram axe like functionality into an easy to carry, lightweight, smaller package. Like full size Thorson axes, each product in this category is as useful as it is beautiful.

Thorson Forge knives, like the Mara EDC shown here, are forged to be rugged enough to stand up to anything their future owners will put them through. Do not let their beauty fool you, these knives are meant to handle anything you can throw at them.

Thorson Forge Damascus Steel is hand forged on site by fusing dissimilar metals together at a molecular level. This forging process guarantees each product will become a unique piece of art that is as functional as it is beautiful.

The Best Blades Come From Thorson Forge

 I was introduced to Thorson crafted blades on a trip to visit a Bushcraft friend of mine in the Pacific Northwest – he was showing off several Thorson knives and axes and I was blown away by how effortlessly they blended rugged dependability and functionality with artistic beauty. Needless to say, I now own a Mara EDC and Custom Thorson Tomahawk – they are by far the best blades I own!
