Ashe & Hammer

Based in Monticello
ashe and hammer hand forged knife

Ashé Cravenock grew up learning the blacksmith trade alongside his father, who noticed his son’s keen interest in shaping things out of heat and metal built him a simple charcoal forge on their farm in Monticello.

Ashé began selling his wares at the Las Cruces Renaissance Faire as a young boy and has since come into his own as a skilled blacksmith who makes hand-forged knives, swords, and other blades that combine raw metal materials with artistic leatherwork.

His business was propelled into further success by becoming the Season 5 Forged in Fire champion (The History Channel, Episode 25: “The Sengese”).

Where/How to Buy:

Ashé & Hammer custom blades can be purchased on his website and in person at the Sierra County Farmers Market and Monticello Holiday Store (2 weekends in December).
