Southern OH Forge and Anvil Quad State Roundup
B² Power Hammer School Mooresville, NC. AKA the Big BLU Power Hammer School invited me to take one of their 3 day classes in August. Now. . . at this point in my non-blacksmithing, blacksmithing career I would not have taken this course except for the fact that this was a very generous offer.
