I Forge Iron

Hello From Idaho

Recommended Posts

Hey Guys!! My name is Thomas and I'm from Southern Idaho. I found this place while researching how to get started with smithing. I have been around a few smiths a few times at living history events, and always had an interest in it. I have yet to swing a hammer myself but I am eager to learn everything that I can.

Read, learn, and most of all, keep your eyes open for equipment.  Heyburn/Burley/Rupert et al definitely have some hidden smithing gems in people's garages and barns...the trick is to tell everyone you cross paths with that you are looking and eventually you'll get a bite at the right price.  You'll be banging iron sooner than you think.

Great Great Grandpa is buried in Oakley just south of you..along with several spare wives he had.  In that part of the country 140ish  years ago, virtually every family came with a decent herd of wives :)

Are you still with us Son of Ander? 2 posts in July then nothing. I'm hoping you found an anvil, forge, pile of tools and an old man who's teaching you the craft. Give us a shout and let us know you didn't get kidnapped by a sesqwatch or something.

Frosty The Lucky.
