  • We came last year, but were unable to make a knife due to needing a reservation. We came back this year. With reservations. Kids got to make a knife. They had fun, different types of knives...

  • I highly recommend doing Forge a Memory! My 2 kids and myself made 2 knives and an arrow head necklace. All the blacksmiths were great with the kids, walking them through all the steps. We had so much fun!
  • This was a great experience. We went for my child’s birthday. The blacksmiths were helpful and kind, as they guided my kids to make their perfect knives. They are big fans of Forge and Fire and it will definitely be a great memory for years to come.
  • This was such a cool and unique experience!!! My 3 boys absolutely freaked out when they found out they were going to get to forge their own! We will definitely come back to do this again but forge the larger knives when the boys are older and stronger!
  • Won wife of the year by booking a reservation for my husband here. A very fun and unique experience. They even sell pre-made knives. Had some neat bracelets while we were here too. He made the railroad tie knife. The guys were knowledgeable and nice.
  • Great experience for our family! My husband and our 2 kids (9 & 13) each forged something different and had so much fun. They were a part of the forging process and were able to watch their knives get sharpened. Great team and very friendly.
