Pat Wojciechowski of Milwaukie, Oregon is a blacksmith and craftsman committed to old-world style. Pat uses a freehand style of blade forging, working with 01 high-carbon machine steel as the primary steel. He double tempers the blades using a different heat treatment, and finishes by sanding the top surface and leaving his hand-forged hammer marks that show the true art of his craft. The handles are hand crafted from locally found Northwest hardwoods, finished with Bioshield oil. Pat's forge is fueled by charcoal he makes with repurposed pallets and wood trimmings from neighbors.
