I Forge Iron

Recommended Posts

Show us a photo of your IForgeIron t-shirts, IForgeIron stickers, your Hofi hammer, or your IFI Hofi t-shirt. We know they are out there, we just want to see where, or how far they have traveled.

I went by the main entrance onto the huge courtyard and bumped into this chap. He is a Yeoman of the Tower, more commonly known as a *Beefeater*. He had an Australian accent funnily enough and was in the royal engineers during his service. Ian Lowe

Me Hofi, in Israel.

I was at a birthday party and a lady walked up to me and said something I did not catch. I ask her to please repeat what she said so I could hear it better. To my surprise she said *your shirt* it says מישראל באהבה. We then had a nice chat about a blacksmith that makes hammers.

Here I am at the Gatlinburg Scottish Festival & Games (Gatlinburg, TN).

Gatlinburg Scottish Festival & Games

Check out the hanging sign for Clan Smith.
I have no ancestral affiliation, but they thought it was cool to have a smith visiting the Smiths.
A lot of their history revolves around blacksmiths and armourors.

I met two more blacksmiths during the day. One of them said he was registered on Iforgeiron as well.

Always a good time at GSFG.

I got hired to fly down to Long Beach and run sound at the Ink N Iron festival last weekend. How can you call it that and not have any anvils around? :)

The first one is the view from my desk--the second is me onstage.

Okay, finally got around to taking some pics (wife left me alone for a couple of hours--what could *possibly* go wrong? A couple of leaf key-rings, that's what!). I absolutely LOVE this hammer!! And after taking Mr. Hofi's advice of kissing the hammer and then walking around the anvil 7 times each day, it *does* forge by itself!;) (oh, and the black stuff around the anvil, if you couldn't tell is small pieces of coal/dust from busting up bowling ball sizes that I got for cheap)

I Forge Iron T spotted on Maine TV. A Smith is running a new school out of a non-profit in Orland Me. He was demonstrating for a news crew (Ch 6 ) and was sporting one of your T's. Good Press. I believe the article was titled "Ancient Arts".

Greeti ngs from Norris Point in beautiful Newfoundland, Canada.
We're on vacation for 2.5 weeks - here we're at week 1.
I have been just dumbfounded by the absolute stunning beauty of Newfoudland - if you've ever thought about going to Newfoundland ... YOU HAVE TO VISIT THIS PLACE !!!

We're here actually for a working holiday ... one of the viking groups I belong to got invited to come to Norstead in Newfoundland - next to L'ans aux Meadow to work in the interpretation. So for 5 days I'll be the blacksmith at Norstead.
