I Forge Iron


Scott Thomas

Recommended Posts


My name is Scott Thomas. I am a full time blacksmith using an early 20th century shop to do all my work with a good old dirt floor and coal forge. I would pretty much call myself a general blacksmith because I do everything from shoeing horses, ironwork for the home and bladesmithing.

I started working metal back in 1991 and have been at my current location for the last seven years.

I also teach students on a one on one basis. I start with a strong emphasis on proper body mechanics with respect to standing at the anvil and swinging a hammer. They start out forging some basic tools and then use those tools to forge up projects that focus on a particular blacksmithing principal. This gives them a solid smithing foundation from where they can go on to specific areas of smithing if they want.
