David Mooneyham has been forging knives into creation since 2000, and started Lunar Eclipse Forge in 2009. The native Oklahoman crafts a variety of blades, but has a passion for knives with basic, multi-use functions. Lately he has been focusing on Scandinavian and Japanese designs, with a particular interest in traditional Japanese kitchen knives.

In the summer of 2016, David was given the opportunity to compete on History’s “Forged in Fire”. After three rounds of intense competition, he came away with the title of Forged in Fire Champion. His episode (Season 3 Episode 13 “Cavalry Saber”) is available to view on VuduiTunes, Amazon, or on Youtube. You may also be able to see it via your cable company’s on-demand service.

David loves learning, and strives to continuously expand his understanding of the craft. He is always looking for new challenges to help achieve this goal. Please feel free to discuss any commission ideas with David via our contact page. We would love to make your vision a reality.
