Kings Forge and Muzzleloading, are premier makers and suppliers to the American Revolutionary War Living History Center project, Movie companies and public. Aside from movie and reenactment quality swords, axes, lances and spears, they make and sell quality wares that are made for use and a lifetime of service. Same with their hand made Black Powder weapons. Owner and black smith William King, is a highly accomplished artist, Flawless workmanship is obvious in all his works. Reenactors and woodsmen alike delight in the detail and quality of his blades which are equally at home on a movie set, or quartering game in the wild. I my self, asked for a small no frills skinner. And gave him total artistic control so to speak, and was astonished at the blade i received. I foresee many years of real world use from this fine hand made knife. So do look them up when your ready to get a real blade, axe, or reproduction., not some cheap mass produced mall job.
