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.
What a great company, recommended to me by Phoenix Creations and spot on in all departments. Ordering is simple and Chris called me to explain a possible reduction in cost for the same outcome, which reflects high quality service. Items for both my orders have been superbly packaged and delivered promptly. Thank you Wood Tamer.

I really recommend Wood Tamer for their friendly service, attention to quality and desire to ensure that their customers are happy and working well with their tools. They really went above and beyond to ensure I bought the right knives, even after I bought them. Excellent service! – Greg Liebel
ordering process simple
I ordered a spoon carving set from the Wood Tamer and found the ordering process simple and the products were delivered to WA quickly. I found all the knives and the Axe to be sharp and ready use. Thanks for your service. I'll be using this service in the future again.
