Chop To It

Like a tool from a bygone era, this hand-forged steel blade is a testament to masterful blacksmithing. Artist Al Stephens hammers recycled steel to perfection using minimal tools and time-honored techniques, creating a chopper meant for lifelong use.

Old world design details like an artist's stamp and curled handles keep a grip on form and function, while a strong blade chops through veggies and herbs in one clean swoop. Handmade in Alabama.

After almost 20 years of high-production industry work in St. Louis, MO, Al Stephens discovered the art of blacksmithing while on a visit to an historic Illinois site.

Volunteering in his park's 19th century blacksmith shop trained him in time-honored techniques that earned him full-time blacksmithing employment. His success in creating contemporary hand-forged items has extended from retail to gallery settings.

This diverse background of trade work, historic technique and modern shop knowledge serves as the foundation for his one-of-a-kind, hand-forged steel items.

In 2000, Stephens launched his own shop in Pennsylvania. Currently, his home and shop are based in Alabama.
