I just read the sad news that Phil has passed away. Once again a very tragic loss for the forging community.

Rest in peace Forgemaster!

On of my favorite pictures here in IFI: Phil's comment on the "Show me your hooks" thread.

Wow, he was just a year younger than myself.

Thanks for the pic Gergely, that was a memorable one.

My deepest condolences to his family.

My thoughts and condolences go out to his family and friends.

Such an amazing character! His energy and passion were inspirational. 

I don't think I thanked him enough for all his help with Masseys, Alldays & Onions and even obscure things like manual oilers on Pilkington hammers.....

Shocked to hear the news about Phil. 

I worked as a Blacksmith in Edinburgh for 25 years and our paths would frequently cross. 

His work was beautiful and inspiring. 

RIP Phil
