Here is an excerpt from the new Blacksmith Tools information webpage:
âBlacksmithing is one of the few trades, if any; where the artisan can make the basic tools he requires using the very same blacksmithing process for which he will be using the tools. Indeed, for many years, a blacksmith had to either go to another blacksmith to get his tools made (not always a good idea â after all, who wants to provide the competition with good equipment?) or make them himself.
Todayâs blacksmith has a huge variety of tools and equipment available. But the basics are few and have remained substantively unchanged over the centuries from the time when metal working began. At the heart of the blacksmiths shop is the forge. This is the fireplace where the metal to be worked on is heated to a temperature where it becomes malleable. The traditional forge was just a charcoal fired hearth with bellows to provide forced air to control the heat. Todayâs blacksmiths still use the same system, although many of them now use modern electric or multi fuel furnaces.â
