Hi, everybody

I don't know wether that piece of information has already been passed on...
Alfred Habermann passed away on April 28th.
That's a great loss first for his family and friends but also for the whole blacksmithing community worldwide. He was famous both for his sculptures and the work he did on the ergonomics of blacksmithing tools. On the one occasion I met him, I discovered a patient and lively character, always ready to give tips and advice.
