Benjamin Hoffman is the owner and cutler of Hoffman Reproductions which is located in rural central Ohio. Hoffman has always had a passion for history, and as he became more involved with living history he recognized the importance of keeping true to the techniques and materials that were used during the colonial era.
Hoffman has spent the last 7 years going through countless trials, errors, and many hours of research to perfect his craft of 18th century cutlery. His use of only period-correct materials and methods allows him to produce items that appear to have come straight out of the 1700’s. His dedication to detail offers collectors, re-enactors, and living historians an authentic, one-of-a-kind piece that they could truly say it’s an accurate reproduction of items from the 18th century.
Hoffman and his wife, Lynsey, love traveling to, and, attending trade fairs and re-enactments, all over the state of Ohio, where they happily offer their wares to the public.
