    Hello everyone! I have always had a love of history and blades. I’m sure this is normal here these days but I love forged in fire and would love to able to do it someday. I’m curious to know if there are any smiths in the Dartmouth area. I’ve seen a few in Halifax but maybe someone from the dark side hahaha I would just be fun to watch the process in person some day

    Welcome to the forum, Chrispy. We have a few members from the Far East, though I don't know if there are any forgers near you. I'm sure they'll let you know if they exist. In the meantime, the rest of us can try to provide any answers you might need.

    Welcome aboard! I'm from the other side of the harbour! I do both forge and stock removal. They are a few guys around but they are not all on this site.

    Wecome Chrispy!! The journey of a 1000 miles begins with signing up to this forum. I'm pretty sure that's how that saying goes. Anyway, you'll find a lot of useful information and really helpful people here. Fire away with the questions. I know i have a pretty good understanding of many things NOT to do : )
