Blacksmithing Information

I happened upon the following link that had some information about blacksmithing and metal work. It's mainly woodworking but if you scroll down there is a metal work heading.

WD you want smithing links? like abana and blacksmiths journal or just websites of individual smiths?

Here is a great one to start. I wouldn't exactly call it smithing, more like a love affair with a cutting torch but hey.. she is cute and the work pretty cool.

I used to have a site, on a long dead computer, for a german smith who smelted his own iron from ore. He worked primarily in the damascus style. I have one of his bracelets in my jewelry box.

abana

Hephaistos

Gulf Coast Blacksmiths
I included this site because on the lower right hand of the home page is a link to the Blacksmiths webring.

slack tub pub chatboard

abana chat forums lots of good stuff here.

I am adding this site because of the emotional link it has to me. Philip Simmons is known as the Keeper of the Gate. He has been designated a 'National Treasure'.
It broke my heart to hear that Mr Philip passed last year. Would that I could have apprenticed to him.

Anvil Shooting aka Anvil Tossing <---for those who like to blow things up with blackpowder.

enjoy..there are more where those came from. If anyone plays in the Buckskinning world. Smiths are always at the Rendevous.

There is much old world publications at this site. I do not know how long they will be available and they are difficult to pull down, but I got them all.
It truly is worth a look see:

Army Mom,

Excellent sites!!!

I like the new Avatar, hope you get some relief soon. 50 degrees in Fl, is very different then 50 degress in the Rocky Mountains.

Making the drive, sunny and warm in Denver, should be 40-50 over the weekend, looking forward to the Fly-Fishing Show and the Western Stock Show, both starting tomorrow.

I knew it as soon as I saw the post about that program that Bill and WD were looking for recruits to learn about blacksmithing especially for ODA's, Anne(Honoree 18C) would jump in and furnish the above..............
