Detailed Description

Swedish Blacksmithing by Norén & Enander

It is difficult to describe the attraction many people feel to iron and blacksmithing. Throughout time, the trade of blacksmithing has been surrounded by an almost magical aura. The smith produced the tools and the weapons that meant livelihood, life and maybe death.

In the last decade, Swedish Blacksmithing has found its place as a standard handbook for blacksmithing in all of Scandinavia and even in Germany. Here you will find descriptions, with complete technical instructions, of the whole process:

  • The history of the forge
  • How to build a simple forge
  • Necessary tools
  • Art of forging an axe
  • Secrets of damask
  • Knife making and typical everyday utensils
All of this is covered using dialogue between a contemporary blacksmith and his eager apprentice. Over four hundred drawings and photographs assist in illustrating this craft. Swedish Blacksmithing appeals to anyone who wants to learn blacksmithing or just interested in reading about this craft that has had and continues to have a huge significance for the development of society.
