We are constantly asked by family, friends, and interested strangers what it is a blacksmith does, so this it our attempt to help answer that question.  A year ago we made the life changing decision to move to Charleston, SC so Joe could pursue his dream of becoming a blacksmith.  Follow us on this crazy journey as we travel the country learning along the way.

Most of the posts here will be written by Joe's wife Elizabeth relating stories he tells her.  The stories are read by Joe for accuracy before they are published.
