    All around smithing as in tool making, different techniques on shaping metal, everday use things. And of course bladesmithing. I've already read Fox 5. Those books have lots of useful info.

    Hello from Southern Missouri

    Haha thanks. Im interested in all around blacksmithing. As for the forge I use an old buffalo coal forge. It works well for what I use it for. Im working on a bigger coal forge for the future. I have new stock but I didnt purchase it so I have no idea what it is.
  5. I recently started hitting hot metal with a hammer and I really enjoy it. Any good books to read on tips and other useful info on making metal do what you want? Also is there any ways to figure out what type of metal you have around the house?
