A traditional blacksmith, I specialise in hand-forged cutlery and cookware. I am the founder and head designer of Alex Pole Ironwork, but work with a small team. Joe is my assistant and production manager, Steve is my teaching assistant and tech guru, and Jaz handles operations and sales (generally keeping everything organised and running smoothly).
