I Forge Iron

In Germany for Two More Months, Itching to Continue.


Recommended Posts

Hello everyone! I realized I hadn't made an introduction thread, but a few of you may have briefly seen me in the chat.

Long story short: I caught the blacksmithing bug shortly before I began a study-abroad semester in Germany. After some digging and shoulder rubbing I managed to find a blacksmith only a thirty minute train away from where I am staying, and so far have been working along side him a week. My time in his shop thus far has caused me to go from distance-interest into full-blown infatuation where I managed to spend as many hours working with him as possible this week, and it culminated today in him leaving me to work the forge and anvil mostly on my own.

Along with my video-watching of cool projects I have also been lurking this forum a bit, and I would love to get involved in this community and find other blacksmiths to connect with in my home-area when I return so that I can continue building on what I will be learning over the course of the next two months. 

Having said all that, anyone in DuPage County, Illinois?
