HUMBLE BEGINNINGS

In June of 2018 Ben took a deep dive into bladesmithing and, with the support of his mentor Mike Suri, advanced his skills and knowledge of metallurgy rapidly. By the end of October 2018 he had completed his first commission.

In 2020 Ben competed on Forged in Fire, and while he didn't walk away a champion he managed to make some great friends and had the privilege of setting foot in the FIF forge as a competitor.

Since then Ben has focused on honing his craft, fulfilling custom orders, and expanding his operation to allow him to continue to create and grow as a bladesmith.
