Synopsis

Only an experienced blacksmith with genuine care for his craft and the livelihood of all blacksmiths could produce such a wonderful guide. Holmstrom provides not just practical instruction for all manner of small-scale blacksmith work, but intersperses his guidance with more general life lessons for blacksmiths, such as not falling prey to habits of intemperance. More than a snapshot of a bygone era, the style and the content of Traditional Blacksmithing will appeal to readers of today, thanks to Holmstroms generous and patient approach. Topics covered include: setting up shop, building your own machinery, repairing horse hooves, fixing your tools, and even building a strong reputation in the community.
