Hand Forged Steel or Brass Torc


Worn by the ancient Celts, the torc seems to have been a symbol of status as well as identity. They have been found across the British Isles and continental Europe, both in grave finds and as portions of massive hoards and ritual deposits.

These handmade torcs serve as a link to our ancient ancestors and are meant to be worn as everyday items as well as portions of reenactment kits.

Available in either Brass or Steel, these were hand forged by Max of Great Ash Forge.


Material & Make

This item has been hand forged in England from steel at the Great Ash Forge Smithy. For anyone  unfamiliar with the forging process, this has been created entirely with fire, a hammer and an anvil. Although quite small, this piece took great effort and time to create.

All Max's raw materials are sourced in the UK.

Because these pieces are hand made, there may be slight variations from the product picture.
