Wendell August is a company specializing in the production of handcrafted artisan metal gifts. Every piece is made in America and has a craftsman's mark on the reverse side. Products come in a variety of metals: aluminum, copper, pewter, stainless steel, sterling silver and bronze. Wendell August primarily manufactures gifts, but it also sells kitchenware, home decor, jewelry and Christmas items.

Customers can order items from the catalog over the phone and online or by visiting one of the company's retail stores in Pennsylvania, Ohio and North Carolina. There are also product care guidelines on its website. The bronze, copper and sterling silver pieces cannot be washed, and none of the pieces can be put in the dishwasher.

The company was founded in 1923 by Wendell August, whose forge would become a Pennsylvania historic landmark as the state's only remaining forge. The company has since maintained its dedication to old-fashioned technology and traditional methods of metalworking.
