Hand forged and carved products by a small group of passionate craftsmen.
Oaken Moose Trading was started in November of 2016 by college student Matthew Pallady, who was fascinated with the trades of old-time America and Scandinavia. His dream was to own and operate a humble business based on traditional, honest work and fair pay, with customer service as a main focus. From this idea Oaken Moose was born. Oaken Moose is proud to say that all products are traditionally made, with modern equipment being avoided as much as possible to keep genuine quality in their one of a kind blacksmithing, woodworking, etc.
Matt Pallady; young entrepreneur, blacksmith, woodworker, and proud owner of Oaken Moose Trading. Matt made his first blade when he was just five years of age, and fell in love with the craft. Although years went by when Matt didn’t touch a smithing hammer or wood chisel, he re-entered the game with passion and strong ambitions. Ambitions that would revive Early American and Scandinavian lifestyles/traditions.
