Honest Thomas — Mechanic turned Artisan Maker
For a while I’ve been following Honest Thomas on Instagram — drooling over his hand-made products. On Sunday Bandit & I finally made the trip up to West Yorkshire to hangout with the man himself & his Plumber Terrier, Our Judd.
Tommy is a self-taught crafter, currently making forged copper hooks, custom leather belts and custom knifes, along with anything else that takes his fancy. He’s got one of those really genuine Northern attitudes coupled with an almost obsessive attention to detail — it really shows in his work.
I hung out for the day while he walked me through some of the processes behind his artisan creations & I photographed them. Oh… donuts, we ate donuts.
