"We attended a Forging Day at the Old Forge and were met by enthusiastic instructors who taught us how to make a Gladius.
Having never been to a forging day before, we were surprised to find how relaxed and welcoming the environment was and to meet instructors who were as excited to make a Gladius as we were. Our main instructor was Joe who despite having multiple demands for his attention always made time to help us along with the forging process.
Joe's patience with complete novices and willingness to go the extra mile for us made the day a complete joy and the resulting sword is something that we hope he can share pride in.
We will definitely return and would whole heartedly recommend the experience to anyone who is interested."
