Why Join ABANA? What’s in it for me?

ABANA is working hard to support the blacksmithing community to preserve and promote the art and craft of blacksmithing.  ABANA provides Education, including Scholarships, two quarterly Magazines, a Network between its Members, and the Affiliate Organizations, and in cooperation with the Blacksmith Vendors advertising in our magazines, a Members Only Discount Program

Publications

The Anvil’s Ring, devoted exclusively to the craft of blacksmithing, is the association’s quarterly magazine which presents special feature articles on a broad range of topics such as architectural iron, decorative design, primitive artifacts, hand forged tools, historical references, advice to beginners, news of regional affiliate events and exhibitions. Reports on tool, equipment and supply sources, employment opportunities and formal blacksmithing instruction make The Anvil’s Ring an excellent resource.


Hammer’s Blow, also a quarterly publication, is a black and white magazine full of “how to” tips and techniques for professionals and beginners alike. The publication comes in a three-hole punch format and can be easily catalogued into a working notebook.
