Castle Keep was established in 1991 on the Isle of Skye and has gone on to become recognised worldwide for the quality and craftsmanship that goes into each individual piece.

I am one of the very few remaining swordsmiths who uses traditional techniques to create entirely authentic, functional swords and knives. This means using fire and a hammer to forge, harden and temper the steel to give it the desired qualities of toughness and flexibility, as well as the beauty and grace of true works of art.

I offer my work and services  to discerning collectors, enthusiasts and those seeking a true heirloom made in the traditional manner of the Medieval Smith.

Rob, it's a FANTASTIC sword. It arrived quickly (yay!) and your packing was simple but effective. Very efficient! It arrived intact and in perfect condition. I love the scabbard, the basket, the velvet, the blade - everything!
