I Forge Iron

Any blacksmiths near Raleigh?

Recommended Posts

Hey all Jon here I’m located in Raleigh NC I’m trying to look and find some local forges recently made up a 12 layer billet of 15n20 and 1095 but I’m afraid I won’t be able to make it solid by hand anyone know of any shops with a power hammer or press they could teach me on to get this project started? By day I’m an iron worker/welder so presses and such aren’t new to me however I’ve only had a very small amount of hands on practice with a power hammer I’ve done smaller Damascus billets before by hand in the past but the billets were much more narrow and my new billet is to wide any tips let me know! Also if their are any local smiths I would love to come and help and learn the trade better thank you!
