Traditional Blacksmith - Transylvania

Recommended Posts

Blacksmith by Paul.White, on Flickr

Hi everyone, I'm new here and I have to confess I am no expert in this field. However, I spend many hours with my neighbour in Transylvania, who is a very traditional Blacksmith using foot bellows to heat his metal.

I also have a short video of him at work:-

and a webpage dedicated to Miklos' work http://www.wildtrans...blacksmith.html

hello, and "bine ai venit!", I'm from Transylvania, too, from Cluj, but now living in "exile", in Sibiu...

that anvil pattern is the most common around here, maybe in the whole central Europe, from Austria to Romania. it exists as original and as local copy. I have two of them, a 32kg original one, JEB is marked on it, and a ~70's local copy of +100kg.

the shop is very typical village's shop around here. very nice that you posted it. thank you!
