As you look around this site, you may notice a link to our retail shop, American Forge South. Though it started with Andrew making a bottle opener for fun, it has grown to be a small but special collection of heirloom gifts and homewares.
The idea for American Forge South was conceived in 2010 and it officially debuted in 2011 with the hand-forged bottle opener.
The opener was featured in Garden & Gun's holiday guide that year. After enjoying overwhelming success with this first product, Andrew returned to the drawing board to design the products that would become the American Forge South collection.
The mission of American Forge South is to create objects out of real materials for quality-driven customers who enjoy the good life.
The entire product line is a departure from the Ironworks' usual array of high end gates, custom furniture, and one of a kind sculpture.
All of our products are forged in our Atlanta shop. Everything is solid steel. Nothing is painted and nothing will break. We're making heirlooms that will serve our customers for generations.
The only way you'll ever need to replace something is if you lose it or give it away.
We believe people want high-quality, handmade American goods. So we create these accessories for the home, camp, and vacation home to enhance the recreational experience and share our love of hanging out around the fire, which we think is time well wasted.
Our newest project is an oyster knife. It makes the perfect gift for the salt water bivalve lovers in your life and can be customized with up to three initials.
Speaking of customizing, we recently created these bottle openers for a Texas groom as gifts for his crew of Texas groomsmen.
We can make a dog leash hook with a basic paw print, or we can make it just for your very own Rex. Or Fido. Or Dude.
