The Story of Longdog Smithy
We are Tom and Cara Toogood, we both trained at Hereford college, after which we got married and moved to Devon. Longdog Smithy is an age old business for a modern time. Combining traditional skill with the finest quality materials to make objects that will last a lifetime. Nestled in the Blackdown hills, we are lucky to be surrounded by hundreds of skilled craftspeople and outdoors enthusiasts, Longdog Smithy specialises in tools and outdoor ironwork for these markets. Care is taken over every part of our work, from the blazing fires where we hammer out the steel, to the Devon forests where we source our fuel.
