Forged Swords, Knives, Axes,
Armor & other Medieval Weaponry
Dragon's Breath Forge is built upon two of the most primal interests of the human species: fire and weapons. Who among us hasn't sat fascinated for hours by watching the flickering of a campfire? Who hasn't felt the satisfaction of firing a bow or using a well-made axe or knife? Well, some people haven't, but those folks probably aren't checking out this website, so they are not our concern at the moment.
Beyond a love of fire and sharp-edged implements, we at Dragon's Breath Forge are committed to creating the most technically and aesthetically pleasing items that we possibly can. It is our opinion that a sword's function cannot be removed from its appearance without rendering it "spiritless", and an attractive knife made from poor materials can only be used to defend against an invasion of warm cheese… and we don't think NATO has contingency plans for that one!
Please browse through the website to witness how successful we have been in the forming and combination of these materials. If you happen to be interested in something a bit more prosaic such as a railing or arbor, then please visit the Falling Hammer Productions website and check out the more socially acceptable side of our talent and creativity.
