If this book were bigger with more projects than I'd heartily give it 5 stars. As it is, the projects are interesting, and I feel that there is enough information for me to start making tools. Some areas are lacking, but the bibliography at the end more than made up for the void. I knew next to nothing about blacksmithing before and now I feel I can start making tools. Actually I've already made a few plane irons using the parts about hardening and tempering.

I think the pictures are very useful. Like the other reviewer I think the text could have been beefed up (thats why I didn't give it a 5) but this is never-the-less a VERY useful book and you can definitely make some great tools using this book.

Great book, written by a professional tool maker. Contains good, practical information on forging, hardening and tempering steel tools. Mr. Larson is the real deal- he had a long and successful career as an independent blacksmith/tool maker.

I'm still going through the book, and probably will for a while with all the useful information it has. I would have given it four stars but my (spiral bound) edition has some rather dark black and white photos, but which are still serviceable, I guess. I've never really seen any other good information on woodcarving tool making, so I was happy to find this book, and even more so at the $50ish price it cost me, when I've seen it at over $300 online. It starts with a lot of fundamental blacksmithing information, and moves on to some how to make a few tools, and shows examples of some more, and has some good tips and advice.
