Years ago, while recovering from a blacksmith related injury, I made a life-changing discovery. I observed important differences while attending various forging seminars between how men and women swing a hammer.

What were the women doing that I didn’t do? How did women blacksmiths work differently than I and other men were used to? Women were more effective in surprising ways.

I invite you to learn their secrets that I have incorporated into my own style which have allowed me many years of work without injury. Plus, these techniques enable me to bring harmony between fire and steel in a more artistic, flowing manner.

Do you want to improve your blacksmithing technique?

Watch this video and you’ll be glad you learned to swing your hammer like a girl!
