What a blast! I had an incredible time at the New England Blacksmiths Fall Meet! Mark Aspery’s demonstration was beautifully and masterfully done, I took home second place in the forging competition with @eaglepat for a drop tongs forge welded sea dragon, and best of all? I lost a bid for an adorable power hammer. It’s cheaper to build my own.
