Hello everyone. I'm new to the metalsmiths guild and looking forward to learning more about working metal! Eventually I would like to try my hand at bladesmithing, but my main focus now is just getting a better idea of smithing using different forges and metals.

Hi Zach!

Welcome to the Guild of Metalsmiths.

Make sure to attend some of the local meetings and meet some smiths face to face. Plenty of people in the area that are willing to show you how to beat on hot iron. Volunteer, take a few classes, help with some demonstrations and you will be making knives soon.
