The experience at Oldfield Forge was fantastic! The first thing I did was designed the axe I would be forging, the staff were incredibly knowledgeable and helped me choose an axe design and gave me complete creative license. Aaron one of the blacksmiths was always available for advice and the technical aspects. It was an incredible day, and one I will be doing again, I want a new kitchen knife! I believe everyone will love the experience of creating their own axe.

I did a couple's day with my girlfriend, and we built a door knocker. They worked with our creativity to build a custom piece that meant so much more than one of the standard pieces. I've gone back to them to do Christmas shopping, and they worked with me to find the best price for some gifts. They are all very friendly and helpful, and I couldn't complain about them if I tried!
