Based in the beautiful Bitterroot Valley in western Montana, Hammer & Tine was created to satisfy Dan's desire to create tools that are functional works of art; they are intended to be used and admired. Dan is an avid outdoorsman with a culinary background. He takes advantage of many local, natural materials and gets design inspiration from their unique features. This combined with the hand-forged metals, makes certain that no two pieces are exactly the same. Primarily focusing on field and kitchen knives, he has branched out
into forging tools and household items, sewing leather goods, and crafting wooden wares. All of the items produced by Hammer & Tine are completely made from scratch; they are all handcrafted with care here in Montana.
