Welcome
My name is
Robert Bordeaux and this is my web site for my adventures into the world of Bladesmithing and Blacksmithing and a few other sidelines to go along with it all.It all began with wanting to learn how to make my own knives and then branched out into the world of blacksmithing.I have met alot of really great people along the way.So enjoy your stay and come back again as I will add new stuff in here once in a while as I get things done or have time
to work on projects.Seems there is just never
enough time to do the things you want to do.
 
 Hey I have been trying my hand at choppin a motorcycle and making a BOBBER out of it. Found myself a 77 Honda CB 360 for the right price and began the work this spring.So have a look at my new BOBBER page.
 
ALL KNIVES SHOWN ON ANY PAGE ARE FOR SALE UNLESS THEY SAY SOLD BY THEM  AND IN THIS CASE I CAN MAKE A SIMILAR BLADE VERY EASILY.
 
I have been teaching basic Bladesmithing and have a couple of pages of students that have come through. So far we have had some really nice knives come out of it all.
 
I am getting ready for a gun & Knife
show so will be making lots of new
blades to take with me for display.So if you don't see something you like drop me an e-mail and ask I may have something done already or I might just be able to make it for you.
 
I am located in Waterbury Ctr
Vermont
 
Thanks for stoppin in!
