  14. Grant: As Frosty said we are elite. We are so because we have skills lacked by others in this too fast modern world. In my experience though blacksmiths in general are NOT. Elitist in the sense that we withhold our knowledge. Most are more than willing to share and some will nearly drag your backside over to the forge and tell you "Hey Look at this!!!. Isn't that neat!?" and then teach you how to do it. Finnr
