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.

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

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.
