Blacksmithing Hobby

Several years ago I began learning blacksmithing, but when my family and I moved across the U.S., I sold most of my blacksmithing tools and supplies. Lately I’ve found my love of blacksmithing again. It’s such a fun and challenging hobby. I love seeing the steel take shape and turn into something beautiful that I put countless hours into.

The knife in the photo above is my most recent creation. It was my very first time doing a hidden tang. There’s definitely some flaws in it, but that’s all a part of the learning process.

If you follow me on TikTok or Instagram, I post regularly about my progress in blacksmithing.
