Our chat, the Slack-Tub Pub, the only active blacksmiths chat on the Internet has over 1700 registered users.   Registered chat users are from dozens of countries in many time zones. Folks are in the Pub 24 hours a day!   We have Pub users (that I can remember off the top of my head) from Israel, Greece, Italy, Czechoslovakia, Switzerland, Germany, France, England, Scotland, Ireland, Norway, Sweden, Finland, Holland, Belgium, North and South America, Hawaii, New Zealand, Australia and many others.  

Blacksmithing tools are now traded internationaly more than ever.   Tools from America, Britian, Canada, China, Czechoslovakia, France, Germany, Sweden and Russia among others are sold world wide.

We are now part of a global community more than ever in history. On any given day it is not unusual to find blacksmiths from South Africa or Sweden chatting with blacksmiths in America, New Zealand or Austrailia. We trade ideas, goods and friendship.
