Big Life Local Standteiner Family Celebrates 50 Years of Forging Metal

Big life local Standteiner family celebrates 50 Years of forging metal at Mountain Forge, a family owned operated blacksmith shop in Truckee. It all began when Hans Standteiner opened a small blacksmith shop on the banks of the Truckee River in the late 1960s. His sons, Anton “Toni” and Hansi, have since taken over the business and built a state-of-the-art workshop of their own construction and design. Toni and Hansi use age old techniques from the Standteiner’s native Austria and seasoned machinery exclusive to their shop. They make everything by hand, including many of the tools they need to craft their unique clients’ designs. Every product they create is an original design crafted as high-quality functional art that will never be duplicated. Their smiths can achieve a wide variety of styles, designs, textures and finishes. Learn more at or call 530- 550-0511.
