Northwest Hammer In 2003 June 21-22: We have three themes this year. Metallurgy and heat treating (Devon Thomas and Bob Kramer), Easy to make folders (Ed schempp's "KINETIC PROGRESSIVE FOLDER" and Mat Disken), and of course Damascus (the rest of us).

If you're serious about folders, let me know and for an additional fee small fee, I'll get you set up to make a template here in the shop during the hammer in. (Limit 5 people). The cost for the two days is $150.00. My shop is only so big, so an early response will get you in.

CSI - Cyber Smiths International now has members in the United States, U.S. Virgin Islands, Canada, Norway, Sweden, United Kingdom, New Zealand, Switzerland and Germany. CSI is a small but dedicated group that helps support, and projects such as our International Glossary of Metalworking Terms.

We have had contributors from Australia, New Zealand, Italy, Finland and Venezuela, and customers from England, France, Germany, Mexico, India and Indonesia.

Our chat, the Slack-Tub Pub, the only active blacksmiths chat on the Internet has over 2100 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.
