I would love to make you something! Email me at AAAPirateBlackmsith@gmail.com. Custom orders are happily made and bound photo documentation with commentary is available for if requested ahead of time and for a fee.

I’m always happy to sell works to admirers of the craft. It helps me to do what I’m passionate about. But I encouraged anyone who wants a small blacksmithing item to make it. At home or at a local blacksmithing club you’ll have a lot of fun! With practice and diligence you may create a wonderful decoration or tool. It can take a lot of time to learn but I think it’s something everyone should try once!

**Don’t worry, unicorn horns grow back. I tagged it and released it back into the wild. No unicorn colts or fillies were captured** Made from fragments of adult unicorn horns these are designed as a product these are tried, true, repeatable and affordable. While not one of a kind like those in the full sized Unicorn horn bottle opener; each lid lifter is hand forged with a tiny scroll and is unique in some small way. You'll never see one like it on the self of your local stop and shop. A craft beer won't taste better with my bottle opener, but it'll feel better - Greg D. PriceSmith

Bigger projects can be made convenient for shipping like this grill that was made with both traditional forging techniques and modern fabrication skills.

The whole of the grill was wire brushed to bare metal and then heated to 500 degrees and coated with cooking oil to preserve the piece and provide a better cooking surface.

The rivets are superficial as the 1/2 round cross bars are welded in place underneath the grill. Upsetting then ends was an aesthetic choice.
