Business Type: Handmade Custom Metal Work
How long have you been in business? 5 Years.
Where did the idea of this business come from? Trade is in my blood, but one day the idea to build a forge to make my own knives just came to me. the rest of my metalworking skills derived from there.
What are some obstacles you had to overcome? Building my own shop and forge from absolute scratch, learning the skills I need to know by myself without a teacher.
Where do you see your business in 5 years? Hopefully creating custom metal jobs out of a real shop instead of my parents backyard and garage. Creating some of the best knives in the world.
What is your favorite OPRF School of Business class? Small business management. It has taught me a lot about how to be more efficient and manage my business more professionally. Although Mr. H has helped me more outside of class than in the class itself.
