Heartwood Forge is a knife making shop located in the low hills outside of Athens, Georgia. They design and hand make knives from high-performing reclaimed carbon steel and wood. Toughness and hardness are designed into the blade-perfect steel that they recycle from the lumber industry. These qualities make for a great knife but also complicate the makers mark process.
"Durable Technologies made an 'HWF' logo hand stamp for us and it has been a wonderful tool to add our brand mark to the knives," says Will Manning, owner of Heartwood Forge.
"The hand stamps from Durable Technologies are much appreciated by us because they clearly add the same type of care and artisanship to their process and products as we do to ours. Their stamps help us make our mark and put the finishing touches on the knives we and our customers love," states Mr. Manning.
