Blacksmith class

Some nice items that you made there. Looks like you had some good instruction.
You will have to stop by my shop one of these days and swing a hammer.

The historic O'Keefe Ranch outside of Vernon BC, there's a blacksmith named Patrick McIvor, who puts on classes there.
Great guy, funny as hell. He's been smithing most of his life. I made a dinner bell in his intro class.
It's what convinced me to build my forge and smith setup.

Matt Jenkins at Cloverdale Forge puts on great courses as well. I took a class with him and his partner last summer and plan on attending another this year.
