This truly is a exceptional book, weather you are a competent smith or just starting in the craft. It explains various projects ranging from easy hooks and the like to more complex items. Shows how to build a forge and tools, gives everything you need for starting out or to pick up some more knowledge. Filled with humorous quotations and knowledgeable advice from McRaven's own experience. Plenty of pictures showing step-by-step processes from each task. A great read for what ever your purpose.

If you like informal instruction then you will probably like this book. It is not a training course in the art of blacksmithing. The author weaves an appropriate amount of humour into his teachings. Having been involved in similar engineering work since I left school, I would say that most of the instructions are of a basic nature; no doubt some people would prefer to discover the boundaries of working with metal by chance rather than have every little nuance spelt out for them in advance. A nice book by a seemingly nice man.

As someone with limited knowledge and experience of blacksmithing I think this book is going to be a great help.
It seems clear and concise. Once the summer comes i'll be trying it out for real.

Full of everything you need to know if you are beginning in the blacksmith trade, from which tools you will need to how to actually undertake certain tasks. Will be very very useful to get started.

Well laid out with good illustrations. A good book for all levels of users by showing what tools are required and how they should be used

Daughter is a silversmith and can also make her own tools, this will be invaluable. Great fast service and well packed.

I have not really had the time to read the whole of this book. Bought it as a reference book.
