A blacksmith is a metalsmith who creates objects from wrought iron or steel by forging the metal, using tools to hammer, bend, and cut (cf. tinsmith). Blacksmiths produce objects such as gates, grilles, railings, light fixtures, furniture, sculpture, tools, agricultural implements, decorative and religious items, cooking utensils and weapons.
While there are many people who work with metal such as farriers, wheelwrights, and armorers, the blacksmith had a general knowledge of how to make and repair many things, from the most complex of weapons and armor to simple things like nails or lengths of chain.
I'm looking for a good anvil for forging knife blades. I have numerous guns in my collection that might work out well in a trade deal. I'm looking for other tools of the trade as well like steel, hammers, tongs etc. Let me know if you or a friend might have what I'm after! Thanks!
