George Blackwood got his start building spurs with his father Bob Blackwood. Better know as a rodeo cowboy back in the 1960ís thru 1990ís. When Bob passed away, the family business was taken over by George. The original makers mark BB was changed to G. Blackwood. Then, George decided to make some additional changes. He began hand drawing his own designs and making custom spurs to fit the customerís needs. He has since learned how to hand engrave and has some very nice work being wore by your everyday working cowboys. His main objective is to stay focused on his quality of work not the quality!
