A Small Town Blacksmith
Yellow Rose Forge is a family of creators. We specialize in knives, but we really just love making things, and we love making things with fire, steel, and hammers. We'd love to make something for you.
Welcome to the Forge
While we're at it, let's state the obvious. We are not full time smiths. We have other jobs. We don't do this for a living. For us, this is a ministry, a hobby, and a way of exercising our creative talents.
However, that doesn't mean we don't create beautiful works of art or can't do the big jobs with professionalism . Whether you are looking for a custom chef's knife, a decorative wall mount, or as full set of chuckwagon tools, we are more than happy to serve you. If it's not something we can make, we have friends who can, and we'll happily put you in touch with them.
We also teach classes and sell unique items we create in our spare time.
Billy is a jack of all trades, but he prefers the term "renaissance man." He does carpentry, woodworking (there is a difference), and has worked as fabricator, a pastor, a teacher, and even holds a black belt in Tae Kwon Do and a professional SCUBA license. He also enjoys building combat robots. Oh yea, he does some blacksmithing and bladesmithing too.

Favorite Tool: Paw-Paw's Vice
Isaac and Joseph "Homedog" Salyers
Isaac and Joseph bring what Billy can't to the forge...youth. These guys are a force to be reckoned with. What they lack in age, they more than make up for with the immeasurable wealth of knowledge that all teenagers seem to have.
Age 35 (combined)
