Blacksmiths have been actively forging the 'Black Metal' for several thousand years. During this time there have been many changes in the craft, however the basic principles for moving hot metal, applied so long ago, are still relevant to today's modern Smith.  The role of the Blacksmith has changed significantly as well! Once the focal point for the needs of a town, city or empire, the role of the modern Smith is more aligned with that of a curator preserving this ancient craft through diligent practice, demonstrations, workshops and artistic expression.
