The Wendell August Forge Difference

Creating gifts that reflect fine craftsmanship and meaning has been our business since 1923, when coalmine owner Wendell McMinn August first engaged a blacksmith from the mine to hand-forge door latches for his home. Now, nearly one hundred years later, our commitment to making unique, individually crafted gifts, has multiplied in strength and passion.

We are dedicated to preserving authenticity in our craft, using techniques rooted in centuries-old metalworking practices. In addition, our belief in the traditions surrounding our lives - holidays, milestones and special events - plays a huge part in the design and variety of our products. Because of this, we fashion gifts that are not only beautiful, but meaningful.

When you get a gift from Wendell August Forge, you can be sure that expert skill and attention to detail have gone into making it. From our designs based on the work of renowned artists, to hand-engraving by master die-cutters, you are receiving an American-made, truly unique piece that is imbued with the strong traditions behind it.
