Basic forging procedures are explicitly shown and additional working methods are illustrated in each chapter. Ironworkers can fashion a wide variety of objects by following the clear directions and step-by-step photographs. Discover what generations of smiths knew long ago - that iron has remarkable properties and this truly is a contemporary art-craft.
