Hello! I am an avid blacksmith and thoroughly enjoy it. I am looking to dedicate some time and effort to start a market for the things I create. Before anything else I understand I must learn to create specific products and learn to replicate them efficiently. Before i get too far along into it, I would like to ask the group whether or not you have kept track of how long it takes to create certain objects of yours. I know this can vary widely from smith to smith based on techniques and etc. What i am looking to do with this information is to compile the average time it takes to make various items that I could market and use that information to calculate the price it would sell at and the cost of labor as well. So have at it, blade-smiths, blacksmiths, copper-smiths, etc. I want to hear how long you think it takes you to make the following things you make on a regular basis. Various Tools Various Objects Various Blades Various Armor Misc. Feel free to ask questions and pick me apart, add in the amount you tend to sell these items for as well if you wish (If you have a market.) That would also be helpful information. Thank you!
