A 'FIERY' EXPERIENCE IN A BLACKSMITH'S WORKSHOP WITH A 150 YEAR TRADITION
Creativity behind-the-scenes with a master craftsman
Jože Krmelj, KRMELJ IRON FORGING
The master blacksmith Jože Krmelj brandishes his hammer in a blacksmith's workshop with a tradition dating back almost 150 years. In one of Slovenia's most well-known blacksmith's workshops each individual tool is handmade from the finest quality steel, while wooden handles for the products are also handmade.
In the settlement of Log, just a 15 minutes drive from Škofja Loka, you can learn about the family tradition of hand forging tools. Visit the workshop and exhibition gallery where there are wrought iron products – from the well-known 'Krmelj' axes to superbly designed Damascus knives. Jože will brandish his hammer for you in his workshop and show you how he, even today, still forges items by hand.
