I Forge Iron

Eastern Cape area

Recommended Posts


I am from South Africa and stay in a small town called Queenstown in the Eastern Cape area.

I am a beginner Blacksmith for a hobby. The proud of my "workshop" is a small metal coal forge which is powered with a hand cranked F55 1/2 British Akosa and the anvil is from Mouse Hole Forge about 55 kilograms.

Good to see there are also South Africans here.

Looking forward to learn a lot .

Dankie vir jou gasvryheid .Ek sal vir seker jou n luitjie gee indien ek vashaak met iets of in daardie omgewing is.

Ek kom maar selde in Johannesburg omgewing.

Dit is jammer dat kuns van 'Blackmiths' so uitgesterf het in ons land met vergelyking met die ou dae.

My nommer is 0730373539 indie jy enige iets nodig het hier in die Oos-Kaap.


Thanks for your warm welcome.I will give you a phone call if i need your assistance or if i am in your area.

I do not often visit Johannesburg .

It is sad that the art of Blacksmiths is not being practiced as much in our country in comparison with the past.

My number is 0730373539 if you need something from the Eastern Cape.
