I Forge Iron

Beginner from Scotland

Hi everyone


I'm 18, and I've been fascinated by blacksmithing for quite a while, and I've spent countless hours researching the craft. I've built a small charcoal forge and made a couple of crude things, as well as doing some copper work, but recently I've decided to seriously pursue the craft and learn as much as I can. I'm almost done setting up a temporary outdoor setup with a decent sized anvil and a propane forge, and I'm looking forward to getting practical and forging all kinds of things.


Although it will be difficult, I'd like to make a career out of this one day, even if it has to remain as a hobby while I learn. I have an obsessive mindset and learn quickly when I'm interested in something. I haven't been on this forum long, but I've found it helpful, and I think it is fantastic that there is an online community where people can pass on vital knowledge about blacksmithing. I'm looking forward to getting involved with this community and getting to know you guys.
