Blacksmithing in Paradise
Kipu Forge provides a wide range of custom metal work to architects, contractors, homeowners, craftsmen and galleries. Our Lihue, Kauai blacksmith shop produces mostly one-of-a-kind hand-forged gates, railings and home furnishings along with many tools for blacksmiths and farriers. And yes, once in a while we shoe a horse.
Owner Ted Shanks is a traditionally trained blacksmith with over three decades experience in Hawaii. His award-winning designs are found in homes, businesses and workshops across Hawaii and beyond.
