Wild Mountain Forge

Location: Mountain Village

Beautiful, Functional, Handmade.

We sell hand forged knives as well as offer a sharpening service to the community. Bladesmith, David Root, makes all of our hand forged knives in small batches using traditional Japanese bladesmithing techniques, in his shop in Mancos, Colorado. Dave studied bladesmithing with the 17th generation Yoshimoto bladesmith. He uses the highest quality Japanese and Swedish steels, as well as reclaimed metals from time to time. The handles are made from beautiful and often local wood. Our knives cut like no other, feel good in the hand, and are a piece of art in your kitchen or on your belt. We have various sizes and styles of chef knives as well as daily carry knives. Lots of exciting projects coming this summer! He also offers a sharpening service at several markets in the area, where people can bring their own knives to be hand sharpened on water stones.
