Greetings and hello from Georgia! (The state, not the country)
Glad to have found this forum filled with you fine folk. I'm a bit of an amateur smith, primarily knife forging, and soon I'll be deep in the craft. I'm well on my way to moving into a new house with a big backyard, and a perfect spot to build a shop. I also work with jewelry and chain maille as a bonus, btw.
So given that I'm extremely excited to put a shop together, I'd welcome and appreciate some advice from anyone willing to give it. I'll post a dedicated thread about it in the beginner's section, of course.
So as I said, I make knives primarily. However that's simply because they're what I know. With a dedicated shop, I'll be open to learning how to forge anything and everything.
So uh, that's me then. I'm looking forward to being here among more seasoned smiths!
