The early days leading up to Alex Pole being one of the United Kingdom’s premier blacksmiths was turbulent to say the least. From a child watching his mother make jewelry in the kitchen, to traveling the world as blacksmith and metalworker, Alex packed in a life or two. Now he runs a successful forge specializing in Kitchen utensils, classes and sometimes an Axe or 2. I had a great time listening to his adventures, making some connections, and hearing his Eureka moment. Theres an exclusive announcement Alex reveals at the end too!
