Flagship Store - Grove City, PA

Our story began 95 years ago. Using only hands and tools, Wendell August Forge began to craft pieces of enduring beauty. Each piece, a celebration of the artistry and history of our craft. While in our 95 years we struggled to survive a great fire and a constantly evolving industry, we’ve also lived our own American dream. We are still here today because of our dedicated craftsmen, our incredible community, and most of all... you. Thank you for a marvelous 95 years. In 2018, we celebrate!

At Wendell August Forge, our tools are our hands, hammers, chisels, anvils and our own creative talents. Our mediums are aluminum, copper, pewter, bronze and silver. Our legacy is using the time-tested techniques in our western Pennsylvania facility to create gifts of enduring beauty.

Here, our master die engravers illuminate metal into an art form by hand etching designs in reverse into a piece of hard steel. The design on the steel die is then pressed into a canvas of metal to create our unique giftware. As the engraver transforms each piece of steel into a meticulously-etched die, he leaves his signature hidden within the design, as an artist signs his paintings. Each of our dies is stored in a vault...at the heart of our company.

Tour the Forge and see the pride our craftsmen take in each piece as they hand hammer and form the design, stamping each piece with the brand of the hands that craft it.

From limited-edition ornaments to holiday themed décor, you'll find an assortment of fine collectibles to cherish year round. Discover for yourself why families all over the world join in the tradition of decorating and gifting with Wendell August.
