Publisher's Summary

Start your journey toward becoming a modern-age blacksmith today! 

This skill that has made it through time and ages is now a scare one; be one of the few to master it, and your works will be in demand!   

Blacksmithing is a craft that has a rich history. People throughout the ages used blacksmithing in order to create works of art and common household items to make life easier. Whether you needed a nail, a horse shod, or something else with metal or iron, the blacksmith was there to get the work done.   

However, as big companies came along and were able to do the work in bulk and in less time, the life of the blacksmith started to fade. Now, it is harder than ever to find someone who is able to do the work of a blacksmith. The good news is that this guide will provide you with all the tips and tricks you need.   

In this audiobook, you’ll learn about the basics and essential techniques associated with the various objects that can be crafted by a blacksmith. You’ll learn about the materials that have been used since ancient times to create beautifully crafted objects, and you’ll learn about modern-day materials that have proven themselves worthy of use by today’s blacksmiths.

Great audio book!



The audio book is a complete instruction in the techniques and processes involved in black smithing. It is set in the early twentieth century and includes instructions for equipment ( lathes) but the forging info is spot on.

Simple idea




Broke things down nicely. Easy read, chapters aren't long and drawn out. I'm hoping to find a more advanced book now from the same or similar authors.

Well written. A source I will continue to use.



This is a good audio book for basics/beginners. I found it quite helpful but it was somewhat lacking in some aspects (nothing much on forges: building,etc.) otherwise a great little book and worth the money.

This is really great


The old smiths worked at their craft every day and learned alot by trial and error, when they took on an apprentice they could teach them things without them going through the T&E process. The author has taken what he was taught and is now teaching us , so we can learn from his master and his mistakes.

This is an informative audio book on blacksmithing. The author learned his trade from a full time master smith. That helps on his prospective of how to teach others how to forge different items.
