About the Author
Author Mike Cardiff and illustrator Pat Cardiff are identical twins. Mike developed his early blacksmithing technique working with Harry Evans and Dave Wooters at the Tidewater Foundry in Easton, Maryland. He then studied under Ken Schwarz, whom he credits with truly starting him on his career in blacksmithing. Mike later worked for several years in Colonial Williamsburg as a production smith. Working within the Society for Creative Anachronism, Mike found an ideal environment for expanding his skills while providing an appreciative audience with accurate reproductions of medieval period tools, weapons, and utensils. His Damascus steel swords and knives are especially sought after by discerning blade collectors and edged weapon enthusiasts.

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
Examples: 1) good - defines what each type of process is. Bad: no material (steel) chart with recommended temperatures for various processes. 2) good: mentioned that the temp of the material can be "read" by the color of the material at any given time, bad: no color pictures to exemplifies, just a description of the color.....
I would recommended for beginners, to get the basic info in one place, but as soon as you past that stage, is basically useless.
I would not recommended it to use if you actual want to start doing blacksmithing.
that extra to help you visualize what you are trying to accomplish.I am aslo please to see it set you up with the modern
aproach to the craft so it does not look so far out of reach.A great addition to my library that I have started.
