I read this book after reading the Foxfire book on blacksmithing in my quest to learn more. Bealer goes into great detail about techniques and tools of the trade. I would recomend this book to anybody interested in taking up blacksmithing as a hobby. A word of caution is in order here though; no book can teach you all of this skill. I would recomend, in addition to reading this book, locating a smith or a college with a blacksmithing course near you and talking to them to really learn the trade. That being said, this book is a great and accurate introduction to the art. This book is economical enough that even if you don't pursue blacksmithing as a hobby, you won't be out too much and will still have all of that wonderful knowledge.

Reçu en bon état.
Un livre cartonné et sa jaquette de couverture, magnifique.
Je l'aime bien, sauf qu'il n'est qu'en anglais, j'aurais aimé une édition française.
Juste plus long et exténuant de lire avec un dictionnaire anglais/français. :)
J'aurais aimé aussi qu'il y ait plus de photos pratiques mais bon, pas trop grave.

Merci beaucoup.

This book is an excellent resource, both for those going into the field, and also for those with an interest in learning more about blacksmithing. Every skill outlined in the book, is backed up with scads of historical information. This book was wonderfly written and a joy to read.

The author was instrumental in reviving the almost-lost art of blacksmithing. He takes the reader through every step of blasmithing from smelting the ore to final product. highly informative, detailed, and easy to read.
