Welcome to Jackhammer Forge, the online outlet for work produced by blacksmith, Stuart Makin.


I create a range of historical replicas including swords, axes, knives, armour and tools for crafting. I research original artefacts and contemporary art work and sources in order to make my replicas as accurate as possible.

Everything I produce is made by hand meaning that no two pieces will ever be the same, ensuring everyone of my customers can say with pride that their work is unique.


I also take on commissions and custom work so if you can't find what you are looking for please don't hesitate to get in touch. 

The links below will take you to where you can order your own hand crafted historical replicas. I do not keep a huge amount in stock and handmade work takes time and skill to get right, so once you place your order I will contact you with a completion date. 

Current start date for new work: End of OCTOBER
