Working with fire and metal is a timeless tradition that goes back to the early days of metalworking when man first started making tools from iron. The ring of a hammer on metal is a music that echoes through the ages, known the world over. Modern blacksmiths continue to use many techniques that have remained unchanged for centuries. Each piece has it's own energy, it's own story to tell. Combining the power of fire and the skills of the blacksmith, the result is unique hand forged pieces that speak of our ancestors but in designs that reflect our modern essence.
We have honoured this long history of blacksmiths with the name Daelen, an old English mythical blacksmith with supernatural powers.
Daelen Forge started in 2015 and to this day we create everything in our small home forge. Although we have had many opportunities to grow into something bigger, we believe our power is in keeping things small and focusing on our art and building our skills as artists. Each item is handmade by artisan blacksmith Shaun and his wife Shelley using both new and recycled materials. Every piece is made, one at a time, with great attention to detail. As they are hand forged and hammered, all of our items are unique and special, no two items will ever be exactly the same. We take pride in finishing every piece to the highest level of quality. Nothing leaves the forge unless we are 100% happy with the final product.
At Daelen Forge we specialize in timeless pieces, such as altar and worship pieces, a gamer series, storied blades, personal accessories, and home décor items.
