About Me

forging world albert

I’m just a regular guy.

I guess you probably had some job in your life which you didn’t like or even hated. Well, I had it. Doing something every day only to get paid is a huge energy drainer for yourself and even those around you.

After doing some knifemaking in my free time, 20ish years ago, a friend asked me if I could make a hunting knife for him. 

He was so satisfied with a knife that he recommended me to the whole hunting community in the area. Then, inquiries for straight-razors began and so on, and on. My business exploded. 

After some time, I started to make enough money to quit my job. As it turned out, that was one of the best decisions of my life, and after that, I never looked back.

Today, I have a successful blacksmithing business and while so thrilled and fulfilled because of that, deep inside, we knew that wasn’t enough.

“It’s a luxury to pursue what makes you happy, but it is a moral obligation to pursue what you find meaningful.” – Jordan Peterson.

I had a successful business for myself, but…

“How can I teach and encourage other people around the world to start forging as a business or even just a hobby?” 

That powerful question motivated me to start this website. Your forging journey will be provided with the best pieces of information and advice possible.

At your service,

Albert.
