About Me

Hi, I'm Stephen Stumbo, I'm 18 yrs old, and a self taught knifesmith/blacksmith. All through my childhood I've had affinity for blades, probably starting with my first pocket knife. At 12 I tried to grind a knife out of a sawzall blade, and was so proud of how it turned out. At 14 I convinced my dad to help me make a forge so I could try blacksmithing. After building the forge I had a rough time getting started, but after meeting a local blacksmith and getting some tips, I went at it. About a year into blacksmithing (2009) I decided to try my hand at making knives. I started out terribly, but I've slowly been progressing to where you see now. Take a look around, and let me know what you think, you can also find me on facebook to keep up with the goings on around the ole smithy.

nother necklace

This ones mine though. Made from mild steel, flats left with a forge finishwhile the bevels are polished. Looks pretty cool, I've had several people tell me how cool it looks already. I joke that I got it from wrassling an old tiger that had prosthetic claws, this one stuck in me.

  1. Stephen, I've got to say, "You make some Awesome stuff!" You have real talent and I'm sure everyone will be asking you to make things for them. I would. Great job!
