    Good day!

    I am new to both knifemaking and forging. I recently took a weekend blacksmithing class, and I really enjoyed it! I have come to the conclusion that this is definitely a hobby I want to pursue, and would be perfect as I thoroughly enjoy working with metal.

    I have been reading as much as I can on blacksmithing, forging, and knifemaking as I acquire some of the tools I will need. I recently picked up a decent anvil (for my needs and skill set), and just got my hands on a propane forge yesterday.

    I can’t wait to jump in and start practicing, and really enjoy the forum and the great extent of knowledge and advice that appears to be here.

    Cheers,

    Jon

    Welcome Jon,

    How far south are you? There are members in Lethbridge, Medicine Hat, Tilley and few other places south of Calgary.
