Garrett has been blade-smithing for about five years. He and his father started Steel Pig Forge in early 2014 after his return from four years of service in the Marine Corps. “After two deployments and four years from home, it was nice to reconnect with my dad over a common interest that we both enjoy. My favorite part about making blades is forging the steel. Being able to manipulate bars of steel into patterns and shapes, then forging it into knives is very rewarding. Forging is a sort of therapy for me; it calms me and clears my mind. I want to be able to share with other veterans and anyone that wants to learn.”
Oh yeah I should mention Garrett was on Forged in Fire!
