I've had interest in blacksmithing since metal shop in high school were I forged my first wrecking bar out of tool steel. Joined A.B.A.N.A on July 17th, 2015.
I think it's important for individuals to have skill sets such as blacksmithing. It provides benefits that allow self realized success in freedom and liberty. It provides a sense of purpose and security. It promotes innovation and industry.
Participating in a blacksmithing craft stimulates, inspires and encourages critical thinking and learning.
I created this forum to share my journey in blacksmithing with others. Writing the experiences in a explanatory way for others to understand helps improve the quality of your work.
