Ring of Fire Forge • Passion. Performance.


Welcome to Ring of Fire Forge. I am Daniel Erickson,  Journeyman Smith with the ABS.
I started making hand made knives in 2002 . “From my first hit, of the cherry red steel, my world exploded into sparks on the anvil.”

I am grateful that you have taken time to visit my work. I hope to share my journey with you, that you will feel the passion I put into each piece. I would be honored if that interest turned into a desire to own my knife. A tool that will last a life time, to be shared with generations.
