Welcome to Mountain Forge
In the late 1960s, on the bank of the Truck River there stood a modest blacksmith shop run by the Lake Tahoe area’s only skilled metal worker at the time, Austrian-born Has Standteiner.
That blacksmith shop is now run by Hans’s sons Hansi and Anton and sits on its own acre parcel in Truckee, CA’s biggest industrial park. Today, it’s a state of the art workshop employing a full scale staff of local artisans as well as apprentices and journeymen from around the US, Germany and beyond.
Mountain Forge is committed to providing the highest quality metalwork in the region by creating each product with a heightened level of detail that incorporates both handmade and industrial tools and machinery with tradition and modern techniques. We believe that our team of artisans create metalwork of unsurpassed skill and dedication to Old World craft in our contemporary workshop. Each product is designed to meet the unique needs of every client and will never be duplicated. We work with architects, designers, as well as draft our own designs in house ranging in style and aesthetic form classic heavily hammered scroll work to today’s clean, sleek edges. We do all of our own finish work using colorful and or muted patinas.
