Happy Friday, Makers!
Man, what a week it has been. Our little mountain town of Boone, NC experienced some pretty significant snowfall, battering the walls of the new shop and producing a whopping 10+ inches at the home of Baker Forge’s fearless leader, Coy. Although our staff of enthusiastic truck-driving blacksmiths faced little to no issues getting around this week, the wild weather wasn’t lost on us. We damn near had the new forklift stuck outside a few times and the sheer volume of snow in the Appalachians was a little shocking. Nevertheless, the shop guys cooked up something really special for this weekend and we’re stoked to drop it to y’all!
In addition to the usual drop-forging, we took some time to continue testing on some new top secret core alloys that you’ll hear about in the future. In need of some guard stock? Good news, maybe you saw on our socials this week, we also spent some time forging down some wrought iron chain links for guard stock available soon! 👀
Last but not least, keep your eyes peeled for an upcoming end-cut drop, batches of our end-cuts have proven to be a hit, so we began pulling together materials for a scheduled drop soon! You’ll only hear this inside info here on our newsletter!
Double Drop Alert: IceStorm in Wavy & Elite CopperMai in Chevron!
This Saturday at 8pm EST, we're unleashing a rare double drop featuring two stellar creations.
First up, IceStorm in Wavy—a mesmerizing blend of 25-layer damascus, nickel shims, and an 80-CRV2 core. This unique combination, patterned with our traditional forging dies, promises to be a showstopper.
But that's not all! We're also bringing back a crowd favorite from last year—Elite CopperMai in Chevron. This distinctive material, crafted from a fusion of copper, nickel, and 10-84, is a true standout.
And here's a special note: if you've caught our founder, Coy’s unique video announcement on socials this Thursday, you've already had a sneak peek at these stunning drops!
Double drops are a rare treat, and we're thrilled to share this moment with our enthusiastic community. Join us at 8pm EST on Saturday and don't miss the chance to add these exceptional pieces to your collection.
