My name is Kevin Parido.   My wife  - Sarabeth and I started Shepherd's Forge in 2021. Here is what we know is true: some things in this world just feel right because they are right.  Hand-forging, fitting and finishing a knife is one of those things for me. When a knife you purchase from Shepherd's Forge is taken care of well , it will be something that gets passed down to your children and even to your grandchildren.  


Legacy.  I am wanting to create legacy with each knife that comes out the forge.   Therefore I will work hard for you to have a knife in your hand that is simple -durable -functional.   


Thanks for submitting!
