  • Hello from Marybough Qld

    Hi all
    I have been wanting to get into bladesmithing for quite a few years now but never really be able to til now.
    I am in the process of making an adobe type charcoal forge which hopefully wont too much longer.
    I came across this forum and thought I would join so as to have someone to ask for help not if but when I run into problems.
    It also occured to me that maybe there was someone else in my neck of the woods to learn from.

    Welcome aboard.

    Antonio is up that way but he doesn't forge, I would be the closest I think.

          Stewart is right - I don't forge. Stewart lives in Burpengary. There are blacksmithing groups and TAFE's around that can help you get started but bladesmithing is a lot more specialised because of the heat treatment - especially when you get into the more exotic steels. Some of these books should help you on your way - but there's no substitute for learning direct from a bladesmith

          If Keith Fludder NSW) runs another hammer-in next year I highly recommend that you sign up for it.
