Meet the Blacksmith

           Paul Krzyszkowski is a blacksmith based in Toronto, Canada. Fed up with the poor quality of tools available today, he has developed his skill with a hammer in order that each item made in his workshop is made with pride, care and confidence. If you receive a Toronto Blacksmith product: it has already far exceeded his rigorous standards of quality. Dedicated to service like no-other, he would be thrilled to work on commissions for specialty projects, as well as anything that has been posted on the website. 

The Beginnings

            Paul had been introduced early into the field of blacksmithing by his father, a carpenter by trade, who had a deep passion for forged weaponry, equestrian accessories, and tools. With this new interest, Paul immersed himself into the subject through high school, working for blacksmiths and studying the craft between school hours. After having travelled to Mississippi to learn tool forging under the watchful eye of master Blacksmith Brian Brazeal and Alec Steele... The snowball; his love of forging, was unstoppable.

            Upon leaving high school Paul pursued a vocational education in Welding Techniques at Sheridan College in Oakville, Canada. During that time he established his blacksmith shop in Toronto, where he worked on further perfecting the techniques of tool making. Upon graduating College, Paul began to work full time, offering clients items unlike any other.

Paul's Values

            His journey was not easy. Therefore, he will not devalue it by producing anything without devoting himself to sourcing only the finest materials and combining them with his hard-won skills. This is why every tool comes with a Lifetime Warranty against any defects which might have arisen during the crafting of the tool
