Although I love a mystery, I donít believe my clients do when it comes to the purchase prices of custom work.  Metalwork in general, and blacksmithing in particular, is labor-intensive and physically demanding.

My labor rate is $60.00 per hour, exclusive of materials.  Railings and other linear work are estimated by the running foot, typically beginning at $200.00 per foot.

Traditional joinery, such as collars, rivets, forge welds or mortise/tenon work will add to this price.  Unusual projects,  and historic duplication work is billed at time plus materials. Design work and installation are billed at the usual rate and delivery is billed at one-half of regular rate, plus mileage. 

Custom cutlery prices are likewise dependent on the amount of hours spent making the knife.   Hand forged knives begin at $85.00 and are available with hand made sheaths at extra cost.

The cost of all custom work will be estimated in writing prior to commencement of work.
