I Forge Iron


Recommended Posts

Welcome aboard Sean, glad to have you.

Farriers are probably the largest demographic of people getting (transferring?) into blacksmithing. You're at least as well represented as teenagers wanting to make a sword as a break in group. ;)

You already have the skills you need; forging knowledge, accuracy, feel for the material, tools and speed. All you need now are some ideas and tips on how to apply what you already know to a new direction.

Same skills and tools, different job. Learning a new job is a piece of cake.

Howdy from East TEXAS!! and welcome to IFI!

Wow, a FARRIER being called a BLACKSMITH!! now THAT's a switch!:) Do folks as you if you can make a rose or leaf or basket twist? Great to have you aboard. As Frosty stated, ya got the skills and tools now just make 'purdy things' with them;) Can't wait to see some of your work. Once again, welcome.
