I Forge Iron

I'll ring mine with the cadence Emmert Studebaker once taught me.  Billy was an awesome pattern welded steel forger.  I learned a lot from the time he demo'd at the IBA conference and looking at his display table(s) at Quad-State. Fair winds and safe travels Billy!

I met Billy at a conference in Indiana several years ago. He had both a smithing hammer and a pair of tongs he made fro Damascus. Beautiful work and workmanship. He later used both the hammer and tongs at the forge during a demo just to show they were working tools.

Our condolences to the family and friends.
