My name is Eric McHugh, and I’m a bladesmith. I live in Wisconsin with my family. My business partner, Tami Donisi, and I started Dougherty Creek Forge 4 years ago. The forge is named after the small creek that runs near the smithy.
Our focus is on recreating European weapons from various times and cultures. Please check out the Posts page to see what we are currently making. Feel free to leave a comment or contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Dougherty Creek Forge is a part-time venture for Tami and me. My full-time job is the Head of Research and Development for Albion Swords in New Glarus, WI. Take some time to check out our full line of historically accurate swords.
