From The Publisher*

The iconic, must-have guide for modern handcraft artisans, Blacksmith's Craft has been teaching the fundamentals of blacksmithing since 1952 for good reason. Traditional tools and techniques of the craft will never change and learning the classic cornerstones of the trade is crucial to fully understanding the behavior of iron and steel. The first in its series, this facsimile volume of the seminal British textbook includes 37 lessons, crisp photography, descriptive captions, and all the timelessly essential knowledge a beginner needs to practice and become a skilled blacksmith, from understanding the parts of the hearth, blast, and anvil to creating T-shaped pocket welds. With the modern resurgence in interest, Blacksmith's Craft is the primary, go-to source to learn the skills, tools, methods, and techniques from inside a blacksmith forge.
