Let me start off by saying I do not have a problem with the use of powerhammer's or modern technique's for blacksmithing. That is not what this question is about. I do not have a powerhammer. I would if I had the space for it but I do not right now. I have come to a point where I want to take my smithing to the next level beyond steak flippers, hooks, cut crosses, fire place tools, candle holders, bottle openers, horseshoe hearts etc. I have been doing a lot of searching on this site, YouTube, old ABANA mags, and across the web looking at artist blacksmiths and the art they are creating. I have not been able to find examples without a powerhammer involved. My question is who are the artist blacksmiths not using a powerhammer in the creation of their art? I know I have attended Madison and Quad State and even demo's that are described as "how to do x without a powerhammer" the demonstrator will often say during the demo, "now in my shop I would use the power hammer to do this". I realize repousse and chasing are examples but I am looking for other styles of artistic blacksmithing. So who has examples of artists and the art that is being created without the use of a powerhammer. Thanks in advance.
