Hello! Welcome to Polar Bear Forge!
This webpage shows everything that I offer for sale. Originally, it showcased my knives. As time progressed, I started spending less time working on my knives. I don't do that much bladesmithing anymore, mainly just for myself.Along the way, I started producing laser cut lamellar plates. These plates are used by different organizations for protection during fighting.
While I was still spending alot of time bladesmithing, the GIB (Grinder
in a Box) came into being. This is the framework to build a grinder
that is so often used in metalworking.
When I was forging a lot, I spent some time making tongs. I discovered that I really don't like making tongs, and thought about the quickest way to make them. Tong blanks were my solution.
As I was selling lamellar, I kept getting requests for a coat of plates kit. This is also used for fighting protection and is a good way to start out a kit or create loaner gear. So I added that to the line-up.
Now that the body was covered, what about the head? I added a helm kit. Hands? Guantlet kit.
New web layout
Finally, after needing an overall for a while, I have updated the
website. It now has a new look and layout, as well as adding
things I've been planning on adding for a while.
