I Forge Iron


Recommended Posts

Hello all,

I am new to this list, but not to blacksmithing. It has been a few years since I worked at it with anything but casual interest.

I moved here to Akron Ohio a year ago and realized recently how much I enjoyed working metal, so am getting back to work. I am looking for a teacher who I can learn on a more serious level and work with at least a couple times a month. I want to learn how to make my own tools, particularly my own tongs and put together my own forge. Eventually, I want to start making blades.

Welcome aboard Tim, glad to have ya.

The addiction never really lets us go. Oh sure you can SAY you can stop any time, maybe even quit for a period but it never leaves your blood and sooner or later it'll suck you back in.

Plenty of members of the black booger gang to talk to here, for sure.
