The Forge

The Mad Blacksmith brand is the brainchild of long time metal-master Jared West. Back in high school, West started his design career with Hot Rods by Boyd, a shop run by the late Boyd Coddington in Stanton, CA. At Boyd's, West worked alongside perhaps the most talented auto design-mind of our time: Chip Foose. It is from Chip Foose and other experts that Jared absorbed the knowledge that led to the creation of The Mad Blacksmith brand. After years there and several custom builds under his belt, Jared made his love of design "official" with his enrollment into The Art Center college of design in Pasadena, CA.

Years later, Jared and his partners launched scores of products in his chosen field of aftermarket auto, pocket knives, hand tools, men's accessories, as well as a short foray into consumer electronics after being asked to join the "Haus of Gaga" design team at Polaroid Inc in 2011. This timeline has cleared a path for both quality and creativity to flow more freely from one year to the next.

With a renewed vigor and a flood of fresh ideas, Jared has promised fans of this new brand: The Mad Blacksmith the ultimate in affordable, innovative tools.
