CLASSES & WORKSHOPS
Knife making and wilderness skills workshops are available at your request. I do my best to accommodate your interest and schedule.
...But, uh, you know, pandemic...
I take this pretty seriously, classes are still possible, but requires some discussion.
My focus is custom knives, but I do some custom forged pieces as well. Scroll around to get a sense of my work.
If you like what you see...
Shoot me an email to start a conversation about commissioning a piece.
Other services include: knife sharpening, metal work repairs and custom pieces.
To inquire about classes, commission a knife or request forging services:
Over the years I have forged many things: hooks, candle holders, bracelets, hinges, old timey plow parts, bells, corkscrews, bottle openers, and a bunch of other junk...but my main focus is knife making.
Below you can see several examples of my past work. For inquiries about custom orders and commissions, please send a detailed message to us on our contact page.

WHO IS UPCYCLE FORGES?
In 2013 Lucas Rebrovic launched Upcycle Forges. After receiving a degree in Environmental Science and attending the Wilderness Awareness School, he turned his attention to developing knife making skills. Building on the flint knapping he learned in his early years, he began designing and forging knives from reclaimed and scrap materials for his personal use. Forging in an outdoor fire, Lucas has a deep understanding of the properties of metal. As an experienced woodsmen, who has spent weeks living off the land, he knows the importance of a having good knife in a survival kit. Always working to improve his skills, he focuses on making practical items that feel balanced in the hand and functional in the field. Luke now lives and works in Duvall, Washington, where he makes knives, teaches children and adults outdoor skills, and continues to refine his craft.
