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.

I am now offering welding services! I can do light or heavy duty steel work, if your interested, email me (Mail@eagleeyeforge) with a description of the job, (and preferably pics), and I can let you know an approximate rate for the job. I cannot do aluminum or high precision steel work (I will be able to do precision when I get my needed tig equipment).
