Saturday August 26th, 2017 (1pm CDT) – four of us are going to do an Instagram hammer-in (#instagramhammerin) for you all to watch. We will each forge a knife of our own design, starting with the same sized stock, forge for two hours, and show a picture of the blade every 10 minutes or so.

There will be four smiths working   ABS Mastersmith Lin Rhea, Forged in Fire contestant Robert Burns (Wilderness Ironworks)  , blacksmith instructor Matt Jenikns (Cloverdale Forge), and me.

This is not a contest. No prizes will be awarded – it’s just for fun and hopefully the pictures will be an educational resource for new bladesmiths.

We hope you follow along, ask questions, and enjoy these great smiths (and me) showing us their forging step by step. Follow along by watching the hashtag #instagramhammerin
