- Swedish Blacksmithing Norén, Karl-Gunnar & Enander, Lars$53.00
Throughout time, the trade of blacksmithing has been surrounding by an almost magical aura. The smith produced the tools and the weapons that meant livelihood, life and maybe death. It's difficult to describe the attraction many people feel to iron and blacksmithing. Perhaps it is part of the longing for simple, basic living conditions that is typical of our time.
Swedish Blacksmithing has found its place as a standard handbook for blacksmithing in all of Scandinavia and even in Germany. Now in the US too we can find descriptions, with complete technical instructions, of the whole process, from how to build a simple forge to the necessary tools and the basics of blacksmithing. The art of forging an axe is taught and the secrets of damascus are explained. Typical Swedish items for everyday use and knife making are also covered. All is done using dialogue between a contemporary blacksmith and his eager apprentice.
Over 400 drawings and photographs complete the experience and illustrate the contexts where words could fall short.
