WELCOME TO 18TH CENTURY ARMS
We are now an approved vendor for the Authentic Campaigner
We reproduce some of the finest hand made knives and muzzle loading rifles.
After a life-long obsession with history and black-powder, in the winter of 2019 I took a big leap and taken a week-long class with Ken Gahagan and Ian Pratt at the Southern Ohio Artisans Workshops. It was an amazing experience and stemmed my fascination even more. Upon returning home I had to do more. I finished the rifle I started in class, then I had to build the next! In the process I bought a small Champion coal forge to make some of my parts. After forging a butt-plate for a Jaeger I decided to throw a piece of steel in the coal and forge a knife, and from there it has taken off! It has taken me to wonderful places and met many wonderful people! I married the love of my life Allura, moved to Maryland and we started a family. We are looking forward to seeing where this adventure takes us in our life!
