Theodore Nazz was born and raised in the city, a New Yorker to the core. He has seen this island at its worst and made it through in one piece; he said: "it’s reasonable to say I would like to continue living and working in an urban environment for years to come." In the past he has freelanced as a 3D computer artist and animator, ironwork designer, and product designer/developer. Today he is a full-time teacher and bladesmith.
Early in 2017, he won Forged In Fire, a competition knife and sword making show on the History channel.

Theo is a very patient and engaging teacher. He does a great job of taking the student's ideas and turning them into a workable project. His instruction is clear and concise and he is quick to make you feel at home in the forge.

If you are interested in learning to forge a knife, this is the class for you. The instructor for this class, Theo Nazz is fantastic. He is very open to letting students create the type of knife they want to create. His expertise in bladesmithing is obvious and he easily brings you through each step of forging. I was very impressed with his teaching ability. Theo made me feel very comfortable doing something I had never done before. I had a great time forging.
We had a great time learning to forge a knife with Theo Nazz. Theo is a great teacher and he has a good sense of humor. He's very attentive and explains each step of the process. If you are looking to try something new, this is the class for you. It's awesome that we had the opportunity to learn from a Forged in Fire winner!
