Gaze deep into the balefire and seize the blade that lies within 

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.
