I Forge Iron

Suggested literature?


Recommended Posts

I have looked and can only find the following books as recommended starter reading

The Pattern Welded Blade

The Master Bladesmith

The Complete Bladesmith

Introduction to Knife making

I can't find classes near me so literature and videos is where I will have to start.

I know the above books are by locals but what books would be good to add to the list for a starter?

Step-by-Step Knife making by David Boye is pretty good. Available at Amazon.

For basic forging skills, I recommend Vol 1 of the Skills of a Blacksmith by Mark Aspery (vols 2 & 3 are great too) or The Artist Blacksmith by Peter Parkinson. Have fun!
