It was a busy year for me this year.
It started off with my attendance at Thomas Latane’s Norse Axe class held at the Raspberry Island Folk School.
The 2017 Summer and Fall also had me collaborating with these two scoundrels, traveling to communities and demonstrating our amazing blacksmith skills to the public 😉
That’s knife maker/blacksmith Tony Roed of Stony’s Custom Designs on the right and knife maker/blacksmith Jerry Hobbs of Jerry Hobbs Blacksmithing on the left. Two talented craftsman who are wholeheartedly dedicated to making sure their customers get their best work.
They not only run their own shops and travel with me on occasion. They also are heavily involved with the Northern Minnesota Metalsmith’s Club teaching and promoting the blacksmith trade (and all trades) to the young and the “seasoned” alike.
