Remarkable tools for remarkable people
Peter Szabo Weaponsmith
Just like metal has its identity given by raw materials that it is made of, also a weapon or a tool has its identity given by its creator. For me this is the way of showing respect to historical production techniques, materials and people who will use my weapons and tools.
I dont intend to be one of many, I get personally dedicated to each product so that it gets its soul and becomes original. I make unique weapons and tools for remarkable people.
Get to Know Me
Since my childhood I have been interested in woodcarving and later I started to work with metal. When I was such a little boy that I could hardly hold a big hammer, my father bought me a forge, anvil and a few pairs of pliers (equipment from an older blacksmith) and a bit of coal. And there it all started. However, after my high school I didnt have enough time and space for blacksmithing, as I found another job and lived in a flat. A few years passed by and I and my wife bought a house where I almost immediately built and furnished a forge. Everything I learned during my previous jobs along with support of my wife helped me to start making collectible, modern and historical cold weapons, according to requirements of customers or to historical findings, sketches and templates.
In my forge
In my forge I make custom made collectible, modern and historical cold weapons according to customers´requirements, historical findings, sketches and templates. I also make tools and accessories for bushcrafting. I stick to historical methods but if it is required I also use modern techniques. In my offer you will find historical, collectible and modern axes, tomahawks, knives, war hammers, fire strikers, cutlery... My weapons are of high quality, ready for hard use and battle. For more details don´t hesitate to contact me.
variety of ways
I make my products of high carbon steel (or damascus steel) which is very hard material, mainly from old truck axles. I use high carbon steel for the whole axe head (some producers use it only for the cutting edge and the rest is mild steel). Edges are harder because the axe is partially hardened. Edge can be sharpened or not (e.g. for historical fencing). I use not only old but also modern materials and techniques. Depends on your wishes.
HAVE IT YOUR WAY! I understand how important it is to feel confident and worry free when it comes to the weaponsmith you choose. That’s why I invest the time and energy necessary to be well prepared for any unique requests or special concerns my clients may have.

Please include any pictures, dimensions, sketches, findings or anything that may help me to meet your ideas. Thank you!
