I Forge Iron

Another "first tongs" post


Recommended Posts

That's probably my favorite style of knife. Really anything with a belly and chopping power. I wouldn't mind making knives one of these days, but that's not high on my priority list. Admittedly, when Forged In Fire came out, it did make me want to. But my first intent was to be a farrier. Then I began to gravitate to blacksmithing more and more. I like the idea of making useful, beautiful things with my own hands. I draw also but I have a hard time sitting for hours to do that anymore. I can move and work when smithing and it combines art with something tangible and have the satisfying feeling of the object in your hand. Sorry, I got a little caught up there.
