The Free Blacksmith is being developed in an effort to catalog historic texts relating to the art of Blacksmithing.

On the right side of the website you will see a list entitled Blacksmithing Texts. Each entry in this list is a separate historical blacksmithing text that we have cataloged or are in the process of cataloging.  When you click on the link you will see information about the volume and a list of cataloged entries from it.

We’ve done the best we can to remain faithful to the original formatting of the books, but to assemble them for a format suitable for the internet requires certain adjustments, such as breaking chapters down into smaller sections and labeling each smaller section for ease of use.
