About Chris Cadman

Willslock Forge is a small bladesmithing forge based in Staffordshire, England. I focus on making traditional, durable and beautiful tools using primarily locally sourced and upcyled materials. My main focus is currently on UK legal, hand-forged folding knives. Given the deep history of the local area, I try to incorporate Anglo-Saxon, Viking and Celtic designs into my work. Many of my knives are inspired by or based on archaeological finds from around the British Isles and across Europe.
