We are SUPER EXCITED to hear from one of our retail partners, here in PDX, that 5 of our hand forged knives were recently purchased by world renown and Academy Award nominated actor, John Malkovich! While we didn't get a chance to meet Mr. Malkovich in person, we are a very tight knit "family style" business and knowing that our products are appreciated by such a well known celebrity is a real honor for all of us!

I haven't been able to get a hold of Pat for about 6 months now. I ordered a knife in November of last year, and haven't been able to reach the shop since. Anyone out there know of different contact info? Thanks!
Pat and Jose are amazing! My boys, Karyn and I had a fabulous afternoon/evening hammering out horseshoe knives. Thanks for your flexibility, graciousness and wisdom. We've all had an experience we won't forget!
Finished up my tomahawk from this last session of 101. Thank you to Pat and Jose for all the knowledge and help.
I want to take a moment to say THANK YOU and express my gratitude to Pat and Oaks Bottom Forge for spending your Sunday teaching and working with my son Tristan on his school project. You made such a wonderful impact on him and myself and an experience we will never forget. Again....thank you for your time, your patience, generosity and being such an amazing person.
Oaks Bottom Forge, check your messages!!!
What is your new address? I would love to come see you
where did you move too???
