Robb, aka Thak, began his blacksmithing career in 1987 at the age of 18. Like many teenage guys he was interested in weapons and armour and this was a primary motivation in his early exploration into blacksmithing. Art and history were (and continue to be) a major influence and source of inspiration for Robb. Utilizing blacksmithing in conjunction with other traditional crafts and modern metalworking techniques, Robb creates a wide variety of custom pieces for clients worldwide. His favourite projects are functional sculptures, usually with a sinister fantasy element. His studio, Thak Ironworks Inc. is located in Floradale Ontario, Canada.
