Richard & Leighton Brooks


From their ranch near Cayley, Alberta Richard Brooks and his son, Leighton build custom gear, mainly influenced by the traditions of California style gear Richard does most of the design work and engraving while Leighton does most of the steel fabrication work. The silver fabrication is split between Richard and Leighton depending on the complexity of the project and Leighton has also started doing some leatherwork. Although we have adopted modern technology (waterjet, milling machines, welders, etc) we still honor our roots of a one man blacksmith/silversmith shop started in the 1940s by grandfather Roy Sr. as we build most of our pieces one at a time, with the same attention to detail to provide superior, functional work that could easily be considered art.
