  • EP 128 with Ilan Shenfield of Shenfield Forge near Edmonton, Alberta

    This week we have Ilan Shenfield on the show from the Edmonton Alberta area.
    We sat down a couple times with Ilan to record a show. The first recording was solo hosted and went into some deep dives on personal matters that go well beyond blacksmithing. Wasn't sure about releasing that so we sat down again. The second recording, this one, stayed focused much more on metal work. Some good info in this show, but some good stuff missing that was in that first recording so that one might just get released soon. Until then, or the what ever comes next, I hope this one brings something good to your ears. Cheers and good beers eh!

  • EP 127 Zac Mahadeo of C&Fe with Natalie Rekai from Toronto, Ontario


    Finally another episode! This one was recorded a few weeks ago, but with life comes challenges. The last few weeks have been nothing short of that for me (Lando). I solo host this one, but with Zac's wife joining it has the normal 3 person vibe. A great conversation ensues about life, love and of course blacksmithing.
    We dive into how Natalie and Zac met at a blacksmithing course that soon turned into a very strong bond. How their relationship has helped them grow and continues to not only as artists but in business as well.

    Hope you all enjoy this one and may the next be not so far away eh.

  • Episode 125 with Hix of Hix garage located somewhere in the USA

    You read it right. A man of mystery, a man of talent and a man that I just had to get to know more about. No he isn't a blacksmith and he doesn't make knives either. He does however make some amazing art pieces. Hix is a lover of hotrod's. If you aren't a lover of hotrod's then take off eh! The hotrod and ratrod scene is very much influenced by blacksmiths and metal workers. Hix tells us about his journey into painting, pinstriping, hotrods and how it became his passion and now his business. Once again Mathieu Laroque joins as co host as he begins to warm up to the podcasting world.
    Sit back, relax and enjoy. Or maybe grind and smash and enjoy. What ever you're doing I hope you enjoy this one and all others. Cheers and good day eh.

  • Episode 125 with Collin Hayworth of Hayworth Handmade in Spring, Texas

    This episode we sit down with Collin to discuss his endeavor in knife making. Like many others Collin found his interest in knives through the hit TV show Forged in Fire. He then followed the path of YouTube University to gain the ability to make some pretty sweet blades. Collin came by our radar when his account got locked out during all the hoora on Instagram with knife makers. Unfortunately it led to Collin having to start a new account which can be very frustrating. We hear about that and more. Once again Mathieu Laroque joins as co host as he begins to warm up to the podcasting world.

  • EP 123 with Lisa Huth of MetalicArt in Castlegar B.C. Canada

    Back to the Great White North for this one folks. This week we bring Lisa on the show to chat artistic blacksmithing. Lisa has been at this game for a good amount of time now. Not only has she gained skills and tools for amazing art, her reputation in the community is that of an amazing artist. I have personally had a chance to see her art in person and was nothing short of amazed. Even my daughter thought very highly of it.
    We dive into what got her started and where it started. We then trail off into how she runs business and of course we get a breakdown of her tools. Mathieu Laroque aka laroquez joins this show as co-host while Nick takes a bit of a break. This was his first cohosting gig so give the guy some slack. Maybe reach out to him and let him know how he did. Everyone enjoys a good reach around eh! Welcome to the team Laroquez, it's a beauty to have you on board bud.
    Apologies for the audio on this one. I definitely tried to correct it, but apparently I can only do so much with the program I use. Hope you all enjoy yah hosers. Take off and keep your stick on the ice eh!

    Sit back, relax and enjoy. Or maybe grind and smash and enjoy. What ever you're doing I hope you enjoy this one and all others. Cheers and good day eh.

  • Episode 121 with Shane Kribernegg of Friday Forge in Twin Lakes, BC, Canada

    Welcome back to the Great White North ladies and gents. This week I (Lando) sat down with Shane to hear about how his journey into blacksmithing began at a very early age, but it took some push to get him interested in what his dad had already been doing for years. Shane's father comes from a life of farrier work and at one point in life Shane finally faced the hard truth that the passion for metal work ran in his blood too.

    This episode was originally recorded over a month ago. Technical issues caused a large portion of the files to be lost and thus we had to sit down again which was just a couple weeks ago now. In this episode you will hear about Shane's big new purchase for his big new shop! There were some difficulties in getting the new shop going but it's up now and looking mint.

    Shane is no stranger to blacksmithing outside of farrier work as well. You will hear about how he has spent some time learning from some really great smiths such as Shawn Cunningham and Jeri Sparshu as well as John Williams!

    Sit back, relax and enjoy. Or maybe grind and smash and enjoy. What ever you're doing I hope you enjoy this one and all others. Cheers and good day eh.

  • EP 120 with Andrew Cirtwell of Deer Run Forge in Burlington, Ontario, Canada eh!


    Finally! Another episode unleashed to the public. This one took a while to get out, but it's a good one. We talk all sorts of blacksmithing, business and life. Andrew is definitely a gent we enjoyed chatting with and of course the love between Nick and Lando(weird to put my name when I'm the one writing this) is in full effect. There was a ton of stuff that was going on in between this recording and its release. You'll probably hear about that in the next couple episodes. Until then, enjoy and feel free to reach out to us via Instagram or email. And don't forget to rate the show on what ever platform you're in.

    Don't let the title fool you. The only battles occurring in this episode are personal struggles and we kinda go a little deep in this one.
    We discuss business with blacksmithing and the mental health that surrounds operating a business. Family life and personal well being go along with much of this too.

  • Episode 118 David Walker of Fire Iron Forge in Rathdrum, Idaho.

    Another great episode with a very solid gent. David is on the Abana board and this has a ton of insight as to how Abana works. We get into what is going to be happening at the 50th anniversary coming up this June. David is one of the people responsible for organizing the team forging event which lines up well for David as he has been working hard at developing an educational shop. Amongst himself and some other local Smith's there is some amazing opportunities for people wanting to learn blacksmithing. We all saw a influx in blacksmithing with forged in fire, but as David tells us, you soon find out that making knives has much more than just forging. As he has progressed in his skills with blacksmithing he has also been teaching these skills with a surmounted level of success.
    It's exciting to hear a success story in the works like David's and we are Forge Side Chat all look forward to seeing where this goes for him.

  • Episode 116 with Ryan Coakley of Ryan Chadbourne Knives and Sharky from Flying Shark Knives.

    This is a bit of a different one folks. Rather than our usual interview style we just winged a convo. And it brewed up some really great content. I may or may not get extremely deep on a few topics so strap on them seat belts and go for a rip bud. This one is a good one!

    We talk about all this and more in this episode of Forge Side Chat. Sit back and grab strange brew yah hoser. Oh, and good day, eh!

    Don't hesitate to reach out and let us know what you think of the show!

  • Episode 115 Michael J Budd from County Sligo in Ireland.

    Welcome back ladies and gents. A Christmas break was well needed and we are finally back to releasing some more gold for your earlobes.

    This episode was recorded back in December as we began to embark on the Christmas season. Michael has been a fan of the show since day one and we have chatted back and forth since then. You might recognize his name from the line up on blacksmither radio with Victoria Patti. He was actually on there twice! Go take a listen to those great episodes when you have a chance.
    Michael didn't know he wanted to be a blacksmith until one day he moved to Ireland and found out that is exactly who he wants to be. After his wife pushed him towards a lesson his life was never the same. And thankfully as the man produces amazing artistic and functional pieces! It was a pleasure to sit down with Michael and hear some of his life story. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did. Thanks again Mike and thanks to all the listeners. It's been 3 years now. Couldn't have done it without you all! Season 4 is amongst us and that means time for a new decal! Design underway.

  • Episode 114 Steve Does Japan with Steve Cornelsen of Bad Llama Forge cohoated by special guest Rick Marchand of Wilder Tools

    Steve resides in a suburb of Toronto known as Caledon. He has been there almost his entire life, but has always had a fascination with the Eastern world. This has recently taken him on a world travel with his partner to Japan where they both visited many different knife makers and even took a course on traditional techniques.

    This episode is a special one folks. Its taken us months to finally get it out as we had recorded over 3hrs but lost steves audio track to the Zencaster cloud. This recording took us a few nights to finally get the full story in, but we got Rick Marchard to sit in which makes it extra special!

    We talk about all this and more in this episode of Forge Side Chat. Sit back and grab strange brew yah hoser. Oh, and good day, eh!

  • Ep 113. Brian Hinnenkamp of Tortuga Bladeworks in Seattle, Washington, USA. With Dennis Tyrell of Tyrell Knifeworks as guest co host

    Comin in hot!
    This episode was something else people. Sitting down with two of the big dogs in the knife game. Both these gents are guys we are all looking up too. Was literally right before recording that I was chatting with Dennis and asked if he wanted to co hoat with Brian. Both gents are very familiar with eachothers work and actually live fairly close to each other. Dennis in California and Brian in Washington.
    Brian is making some extemely amazing blades with a very unique look to many. A look he developed mostly on his own. You see. Brian has a love for pirates. Big time! To the point he wanted what he calls a shipwreck patina in his blades. We dive into that and also his san mi work. Best part is you also get Dennis asking questions and giving his input.

    We talk about all this and more in this episode of Forge Side Chat. Sit back and grab strange brew yah hoser. Oh, and good day, eh!

  • Episode 111 with Marcus McCoy of @trollcunningforge in the beauty state of Washington(almost Canada eh)

    Marcus and I have been buddies on the socials for a few years and one thing really sticks out about this guy. His work lies in the occult world! Its got a dark and sinister look yet whimsicle and daring to the beholder.
    His knowledge in the occult world is unlike any other I know. Especially amongst blacksmiths. Although, that being said there is a strong connection to the blacksmith world as you'll hear in this episode. The Halloween special! Honeslty some gnarly topics in this one. Thanks Marcus! Stay awesome eh!
