Thailand's finest blacksmiths have been labouring under the intense, humid Thai heat for centuries. Their skills passed down from previous generations of Master Blacksmiths. They work to survive, producing durable agricultural blades & tools for use in the thick, dense Thai jungle, to the rice fields of the rural countryside.
There is a strong sense of community within Thailand's Blacksmiths. While there are still a lot of self-taught men and women working in rural villages and bamboo huts, there is a strong, vibrant community of like-minded Bladesmiths that have full workshops with dedicated knife making tools all crafted from scratch. They feed off each others knowledge and thrive off a sense of community. They help one another to hone and perfect their individual craft. They push each other to be better Knife Makers, and to produce better blades. They order supplies together, build tools and work stations for each other and most important, they gather in fellowship and friendship.
Siam Blades is 100% Thai owned and we practice fair trade sustainability directly with all our Artisan Makers. According to Aliens Working Act (B.E. 2521 or 1978)
, Knife Making is listed as one of the Prohibited Jobs for Foreigners in Thailand
. We only employee Thai artisans to continue the knife making tradition of Thailand into the next 100 Years.
