Controlled Hand Forging

Before introduction of the National Curriculum, ABANA developed a series of articles teaching the fundamentals of hand forging. They were published in our Hammer’s Blow Magazine in the years 2000 -2010. The Controlled Hand Forging Series is a valuable resource for everybody who wants to learn blacksmithing. It does not have the rigidity of the NC Program which is focused on learning towards certification. Nevertheless, every student, learning for the Curriculum or just for fun, can certainly gain a lot of insight and hone his/her skills working through these articles.

Get the fire going and have fun.
