Masters of the Ancient Art of Metalwork

Charleston Forge - Tuesday, June 20, 2017

The Village Blacksmith 

Under a spreading chestnut tree
The village smithy stands;
The smith, a mighty man is he,
With large and sinewy hands;
 . . .

Week in, week out, from morn till night,
You can hear his bellows blow;
You can hear him swing his heavy sledge,
With measured beat and slow, . . . 

Thus at the flaming forge of life
Our fortunes must be wrought;
Thus on its sounding anvil shaped
Each burning deed and thought!
 

— Henry Wadsworth Longfellow 

Blacksmithing is a centuries old craft.  We are proud, here at Charleston Forge, to employ such talented men trained in the art of metalworking and blacksmithing.  According to a recent NPR article, there are only between 5,000 and 10,000 blacksmiths left in the U.S. and of those only about 10% use their talent as a profession. We would not be able to design and build such beautiful pieces of furniture without our hardworking and talented metalworkers.  When you tour our factory in Boone, NC we always begin our tour with our forging area. It is hot and loud and impressive.

A Sweet and Cozy Evening in Front of the Fire

Charleston Forge - Wednesday, October 16, 2013
A cozy autumn evening in front of the fire most certainly should include indulging in sweet, melting s'mores.  Hand forged skewers from CF Home's online store will toast the marshmallows perfectly. And on this particular autumn evening, we sandwiched the toasted marshmallows and melting chocolate between the best home made graham crackers we have ever tasted.  Yum!  They were baked from Susan Barber's personal recipe, which she will share with you.  Just drop Susan an email with 'graham crackers' in the subject line.  sbarber@charlestonforge.com
You can also purchase the skewers for yourself or as a gift, here on our online store:

Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower. - Albert Camus
