Learn to forge, finesse, and finish steel while crafting a hand forged, custom-fit cuff in this blacksmithing intro with Karen Kocher!

You’ll learn how to operate a blacksmithing forge using a suite of critical hand tools (like hammers, tongs, and vices) to heat steel; how to flatten, twist, and shape steel at the anvil; and how to finish your work with natural waxes and oils to obtain the blackened patina commonly associated with Blacksmithing.
