Hello, everyone. I am a transposed smith from down south to the New England area. I'm hoping to set my own shop up once I get out of my 750 sq.ft apartment. In the meantime, I'd like to get back into making knives and trinkets again. I don't have tons of tools, but I do have a 16oz and 32oz ball peen hammer and a vice currently. I'm looking to get a 3lb maul to have cut down into a 2lb dog head hammer. Are there any smiths in the area that would be willing to entertain having an apprentice in shop to help with projects. Oh, and as the title has suggested, I've done Damascus blades before. My favorite 1080/1050 with about 60 layers, and sometimes ladder patterned.
Hello all. My 7 year old son has been hammering soft steel on an anvil I inherited from my grandfather. We realized that he was ready to move up, so I build a brake drum forge. this journey has been fun and we are excited to practice and learn more. We are trying to make all of our own tools, so this will take some time and I'm certain it will be more rewarding.
