Reforged Ironworks is a family blacksmith shop located in the Creston valley of British Columbia, Canada. We specialize in forging legacy quality gardening tools from reclaimed and local materials. The shop creates tools such as broadforks, hori hori, Japanese sickles, trowels and hoes. We are willing to create custom projects and tools as well.

The tools forged are designed for heavy use in the garden, yard or on the farm. They’re very durable and effective at what they do because they’re based on tool patterns that have worked for ages. Every tool is hand crafted, giving it the unique and beautiful look of hand forged steel . Any implement can be custom fit to match precisely what the customer requires. If you’re looking for a gardening implement that’s Canadian made, works hard and is truly unique, then take a look at what we have to offer. Our tools page highlights some of the creations that the forge is turning out right now.

If you’d like to know more, or are interested in ordering a custom made, hand forged tool, you can reach me via the Contact Us page.
