The Balefire forge is home to Chris Adams, an artisan crafting beautiful bespoke swords for clients across the globe. Together with writer and leatherworker Alicia Lewis, he has created a home for historical fencers and lovers of fantasy.
No two Balefire swords are the same. With quality and artistry as guiding principles, every Balefire weapon is a legend in the making. Each piece is made to order, turning clients’ visions into one-of-a-kind fencing weapons that will stand the test of time. View our past commissions for inspiration.
