Battleship Steel and a Washington Tree Create an Epic Bowie Knife

For those unfamiliar with it, Black Horse Forge is based in Fredericksburg, Virginia, and was created in 2018 by Steve Hotz. A retired sergeant who served in the 325th Regiment, 82nd Airborne Division, Hotz has been blacksmithing for eight years and provides much of the forge’s blacksmithing equipment. The cadre at Black Horse Forge is a mix of veterans, active-duty service members, and law enforcement officers, and the forge has expanded to include several affiliate forges throughout the United States, the United Kingdom, and Australia. 

Lucas O’Hara of Grizzly Forge traveled to Virginia to meet with Hotz and his crew. With their powers combined, they got to work on creating a historical masterpiece of a bowie knife.



For the blacksmiths, building the knife was such a cool experience — there’s nothing like holding that much history in your hands. And of course, they snuck in a way to use coffee.

Our friends at Black Horse Forge help veterans and first responders through the art of blacksmithing. It’s an incredible mission; check them out here:
