Joshua L Burrell is a traditional blacksmith and toolsmith based in Loughborough, Leicestershire UK. Joshua grew up around his father Graham Burrell's forge, (often helping out in his spare time whilst still at school). His formal training began in 2007 at the age of 17. Joshua soon found that his main focus lay in the creation of beautiful and effective hand tools; especially those tools associated with heritage trades. This adherence to traditional practice has produced works that are in many cases indistinguishable from tools made in the "golden age" a century ago.
